Parents should Teach their children talk quietly,be courteous to the bus driver and follow the driver’s directions,keep the aisles clear,stay seated for the entire bus ride.

As a school bus driver for the past 23 years, I feel the current law regarding seat belt use on school buses is quite adequate. It would be very difficult to enforce a seat belt law on a regular size school bus. In addition, if the students needed to evacuate the bus, there would be seat belts all over. The children could easily become tangled up in the belts. This could cause great harm. School bus drivers are human beings. We make mistakes, however, we are very well trained to carry the most precious cargo there is.
