New Zealand bus safety standards are in the spotlight after two serious bus crashes in less than a week.
Questions have been raised over the age of our buses, and whether seatbelts should become compulsory on coaches and buses.
Road safety specialist Peter Sheppard said that adding seat belts to buses is a non-brainer.
“Keeping them restrained would save lives, most definitely, and there are bags of research on this.”
He says that the practice is very common in Europe.
What do you think? Should we make seat belts compulsory on buses?
