California is a populous state that is heavily populated with many things including people, vineyards, bicycles, beaches, and buses. Yes, buses. There are close to 100,000 registered buses in the State of California. Many of us in Lancaster are Antelope Valley Transit Authority passengers and many of us have children that at least occasionally ride a school bus for a school field trip or event. With so many buses operating in Lancaster and around the State of California, it is a good thing that they implemented the seatbelt requirement law in which many types of buses are required to have seatbelts.
Most people agree that the seatbelt law is important, but there are some problems with it. One is that not all types of buses are required to have seatbelts and even when they do have seatbelts, often passengers are not wearing them. Another problem is that older buses are grandfathered in so that if they do not have seatbelts, they may continue operating until 2035 without seatbelts. Finally, buses cause a number of injuries that are not affected by seatbelt use.
