Did You Know That Buses Don't Need Seat Belts Because, When Inside…


Have you ever wondered why school, highway and city buses don’t have seatbelts? The answer is simple – they don’t need them.
Since buses have high flooring and their seats are placed higher than those in other vehicles, in case of collision the damage would happen under the seating, thus keeping the passengers safe. School buses have closely placed seating with high backs, which are padded. In the event of an accident, child would be pushed forward to what seems like an early version of the airbag. This also applies for highway buses. The padded backs and the elevated floors keep the passengers safe.
Yet city buses don’t have such high floor plans and the distance between the seats is wider. However, placing seatbelts would require more space, which would mean less seats. And since many passengers are standing while traveling with city buses, seatbelts wouldn’t do much good. Not only that, placing seatbelts would cost between $8,000 and 15,000 for each bus!
Nevertheless, all buses include a seatbelt for the driver to secure him during the drive in case any impact.
