Additional Costs Hinder States from Mandating Seat Belts in School Buses

The Omaha (NE) World-Herald reports many were surprised last November when National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Administrator Mark Rosekind reversed the agency’s stance on the issue of seat belts on school buses when he said, “Seat belts save lives, and that includes seat belts on school buses,” he added, “Commitment to a simple principle – that all kids deserve seat belts on their school bus – must guide all of us.” The NHTSA’s previous stance was that the “modest reduction of fatalities” did not always justify the cost of adding seat belts on buses. The NHTSA endorsement of seat belts has prompted more bills to be introduced in state legislatures pushing for seat belts on school buses.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
