KANSAS CITY — Attendees at the National State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services Annual Conference heard and discussed studies examining the positive impact that seat belts have on student behavior, performance and driver retention.
Important and timely conversations always take place at industry conferences, but none are as relevant as the ones on Saturday at the Kansas City Fire Academy.
Several small school bus manufacturers were named in a recommendation made by the National Transportation Safety Board to make lap-shoulder seat belts standard equipment, in response to a fatal, head-on collision last year in Texas between an impaired driver and a church bus.
One middle school student from Mesquite Independent School District near Dallas, Texas, died, and four others were sent to the hospital, following a school bus roll-over and fire.
With NHTSA, NASDPTS, and now the NTSB calling for seat belts on new school buses, more districts than ever are getting onboard. Whether you’re just beginning to think about adding lap-shoulder belts, you’re on the verge of taking the plunge, or you’ve already upgraded and need a usage policy to get the most out of them, there’s someone you should meet.
