Letter: Belts on buses

January 15, 2013 

SHARON BURG, Kennewick

Again, there has been a horrific bus accident where people have been thrown out of the vehicle. Just a simple question: Why are not buses (all of them) required to have standard seat belts as passenger vehicles do?

Oh, yes, the money! But isn't it worth a life? It could be done if bus companies cared.
