Gov. Riley creates committee on bus safety

Comments Off

After the recent school bus accident that tragically killed four students in Huntsville, Alabama Governor Bob Riley is examining school bus safety.

Yesterday he appointed a committee of education, transportation and public safety officials to meet and determine whether seat belts would improve school bus safety for students.

A report from the Ledger-Enquirer details the story:

The committee decided to hold a two-day public hearing in Huntsville – tentatively set for Feb. 5-6 – to hear comments from highway safety and transportation experts from across the country as well as from citizens. Committee members said they would use those comments to prepare a report for Riley.

And so the school bus seat belt debate continues in Alabama and throughout the nation.
