Seatbelts and Texas School Buses

The safety of children when they are on their way to and from school is always a vital concern among parents, teachers, and school administrators. Every day in Texas, roughly 1.5 million children use a bus as their primary transportation for getting to school or another related activity.

The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) has stated that “every child on every school bus should have a three-point seatbelt.” Many school bus accidents in Texas have included fatalities and injuries that could have been prevented if the buses had been equipped with three-point seat belts.  For example, in April of 2017, 23 fourth-graders in Lumberton were hospitalized after a collision involving their school bus, a pickup truck and an 18-wheel tractor-trailer rig. Read more.
