Virginia Student Bus Crash Raises Fears About Seat Ejections

Posted on December 4, 2015


EDITORIAL:
 Earlier this week, a Home Ride bus with students from U.Va., Radford and Virginia Tech overturned outside of Richmond, injuring 34 of its 50 passengers.

While the incident may appear isolated for U.Va. students, transportation safety — especially for interstate buses — is important for students since they frequently take low-budget buses. Inadequate regulation can cost lives.

    yea. because more govt regulations and life time benefits/ pensions are going to fix the fact that passengers REFUSE to wear seat belts,even becoming combative at the mere suggestion. be very careful what you ask your govt. to do for you...as once they get their hooks in they never go away.
