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.
