Millions ride on roadways and highways everyday without being buckled into their seats. And in spite of seat belt laws around the nation no one is breaking the law. Now that might change in Illinois. Secretary of State Jesse White now says he supports a law requiring seat belts on school buses. SOS Spokesperson Dave Druker says they want to see a standard three point belt in bus seats to keep kids safer.
This is far from a new issue in Illinois or other states, but cost has often been cited as a reason to keep seatbelts off of buses.
