I think that the law on seatbelts for larger minibuses and coaches needs changeing.

It currently states that under 14s don't have to wear seatbelts on the rear of coaches and larger minibuses and yet over 14s do.

I think it needs changing for today's world as its discriminating pepole by their age which is classed as being ageist.

I think the law should state that anyone should not have to wear a seatbelt on larger minibuses and coaches and the exemption added  to buses where seatbelts are fitted. As it's unfair that under 14s don't have to wear a seatbelt and over 14s do on larger minibuses and coaches. I think it should be changed to that  anyone dose not have to wear a seatbelt on coaches and on larger minibuses and on buses where seatbelts are fitted.  Also the law should stay stating for coaches: that anyone sitting on the row behind the driver (except for the upper deck) must wear a seatbelt and anyone else sitting in any other seat are not obliged to wear a seatbelt if they don't want to . I feel that the exemption should be on any buses with seatbelts that in the rear of any buses with seatbelts that you don't have to wear one. But the law should stay on cars and remain compusary to wear seatbelts. I also feel that on smaller minibuses that the exemption should be on smaller minibuses to. giving the passengers the choice weather to wear one or not in any of  the rear seats. The driver and front  seat passenger(s)on smaller minibuses it. should be compusary for them to wear one.

 

On larger minibuses  the front seat passenger(s) and driver it should remain compusary for them to wear  seat belts  and in any seat in the rear regardless of age they should have a choice weather to wear a seatbelt or nothe.  As I think the exemption for under 14s should be extended to over 14s as well to make it fair as it's unfair that under 14s get to choose and over 14s do. But passengers with a colmpusive seatbelt wearing exemption certificate the law should remain stating: any passengers with such certificate of coaches must be at  the back seats of a coach. On larger minibuses the law should stay  the same.
