School Bus Seat Belt Legislation in Colorado and Nebraska

School bus seat belt legislation is on the 2017 agenda

The safest school buses
Every new Blue Bird school bus can have seat belts.

You can’t put a price on the safety of our children. Each year, 25 million children nationwide are transported to and from school in school buses. Yet, only six states have laws that require school buses to be equipped with seat belts. This year, many states, including Colorado and Nebraska, are considering legislation that would require lap/shoulder seatbelts on all new school buses.

Seat belts on new school buses

We all know that wearing a seat belt will improve safety. However, for reasons unknown, only California, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, and Texas have state laws requiring school buses to have seat belts. In 2017, this could all change as many states are looking to pass similar legislation. Legislation can take a long time to pass, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get ahead of the law and replace old school buses with new school buses equipped with seat belts for every student. We understand that the budget is tight and you’re looking to save on every expenditure, but the safety of our children shouldn’t be up for debate.
