SAFETY ISSUE: While motorcoaches, like airplanes, statistically rank among the safest modes of travel, charter bus accidents, like plane crashes, get so much media attention that they create fearful misperceptions that lead people to think they are safer driving their own cars. Now, efforts are underway to require seatbelts on motorcoaches. While motorcoaches will remain a safer mode of travel with or without seatbelts, it's not a bad idea since airplanes require them as well. -- M.R.
