School buses do not have seat belts because of liability laws. Ifthey put them in, then someone would be liable to ensure that theywere fastened. No one is willing to face the… lawsuits, so we preferour children to be unsafe. The National Highway Traffic SafetyAdministration argues that seat belts aren't the most effective wayto protect passengers on school buses. Instead the big yellowbeasts employ something called "compartmentalization." Think back to your days on the good ol' school bus. Remember howthose rigid green seats were wedged closer together than on eventhe cheapest no-frills airline? That's compartmentalization inaction. Sitting in "strong, closely-spaced seats that haveenergy-absorbing high seat backs," passengers are effectivelyprotected from crashes. Of course, the method can't prevent allinjuries, but the NHTSA argues it's the best possible solution.Several studies have shown seat belts would provide "little, ifany, added protection." School districts are permitted to add seat belts to buses, but theyalso must make sure the seat belts are used properly. And as anyonewho's ever ridden on a bus full of elementary school childrenknows, that's no easy task. Even so, plenty of folks feel seat belts on school buses should bemandatory. The National Coalition for School Bus Safety believescompartmentalization doesn't protect against "rear-end, lateral androllover collisions." And they contend that seat belts areaffordable, even for cash-strapped school districts.
Keeps you in the car and out of the windshield when you have an accident!
How come school buses do not have seat belts for the children. Do you think that it is a safety issue?
Well, i think that school busses don't have seat belts because the school trusts the bus driver to be safe. Also, the bus driver expects the children to stay in their seats. B…ut some buses do have seat belts, and I bet thoes shools are very safe. Yes, I do think it is a safety issue because there would be a lot of kids being injured if the bus had an accedent. . School buses do not have safety belts for all passengers, though there are four safety belts in the front two rows which are required by law. These belts are used to secure child-seats. The reason there are no seat belts for children in school buses is simple: In the event of an accident, children that are injured, semi-conscious, in shock, frightened, etc, would likely need assistance unlatching a seat belt . Do you think the bus driver would have time to free all the children from safety seat belts in the event of an accident? And what if the drive is incapacitated? Who will help then? Common sense tells us that safety belts would hinder evacuation procedures in the event of an accident. That's why there are no seat belts in buses! Full size school buses are designed for crash safety. High back seats, smooth edges....so if the bus flips kids will bounce around but not be hindered by belts abd buckes. Also, if a bus were on its side, six kids would be piled on each other in a row and the belts would not allow them to escape. Kids alos tend to use belts as weapons to hurt each other. Plus, who is going to monitor the kids to see if they keep them on...the driver has enough responsibility.

Children up to certain weights are required to be in car seats that are held in place with the seat belts in most states. After they reach a certain weight, they are required …to wear seat belts, so not only can children wear seat belts, after they no longer are required to be in car seats, they are required to wear a seat belt.
Always wear a seat belt because if you don't you can easily die.
For one, there's Chrysler Sebring convertible seats.

It depends on the size of the limo, but most of the big limousines are 14 seats, and i think the smallest is about 6, but if you needed a bigger limousine i think they do …fancy mini bus' instead, which can hold up to about 20 people. If you want to hire a limo service, then usbargainlimo.com is the best for providing limousine service, party bus services, etc.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics for 2008, 510 children (under the age of 16) who died in auto crashes were not wearing their… seat belt.

In most states, yes, adults can be fined/ticketed for not adhering to proper child restraint laws. (It's the law in all 50 states; however, in some states, that would not …be the only reason a driver would be pulled over.)
yes if the car is equipped with seat belts.
Are children 4 to 5 years old allowed by law to be secured in a child safety seat or a standard seat belt?
Until a child is taller than 42" they are supposed to be in a car seat, no matter how old. It goes by height, not age.
No, and adults aren't either. Its way to dangerous.
