Seatbelts for Canadian School Buses, Now!

The picture above cost a child’s life because Canadian school buses have no seatbelts.
Thousands of Canadian children are being injured and in some cases killed because school buses aren’t equipped with seatbelts. If they were, these tragedies could be prevented.
I started this petition because I’m a school bus driver and I’m the only one to buckle up. Does that make sense? It’s a dollars over safety issue!
A well-buried 2010 Transport Canada test crash study revealed that school buses failed safety tests and failed to prevent serious injuries in the event of side-impact or rollover crashes. The report concluded that more needs to be done to "reduce or eliminate the serious injuries" and Transport Canada's chief of crashworthiness research said seatbelts are "a good first step" towards improving school bus safety.
Since 2017, school buses in Texas are required by law to have three-point seatbelts for all riders. Why can’t we do the same in Canada?
It’s time for Canada to realize that seatbelts save lives and protect our children.
You can potentially save a child’s life by just signing this petition! Please SIGN and SHARE today.
