Seat Belts on School Buses?

Since that accident, several lawmakers have been discussing whether seat belts on school buses would make the ride for kids safer.

School officials have not taken a position on it.

But many parents we spoke with today say it's better to be safe than sorry.

"I am a mother of six, five which ride the county school buses and I believe that if I'm required to have my children in seat belts that the state should also require it for school buses," said Crystal Demaranville.

"It should make it safer but you have to have someone on the bus to enforce it to make sure they stay strapped down. I think it would be too much for the bus driver on himself to enforce because he has to drive," said James Gray.

Georgia's Department of Education says regulators are awaiting a three-year study by the University Transportation Center for Alabama to see if seat belts reduce injuries before taking a stance.
