Chil­dren on school bus in­volved in crash were not wear­ing seat­belts

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

“When my son climbed up to the school bus I no­ticed many chil­dren sit­ting with­out seat-belts on. I drew this to the at­ten­tion of the bus driver. He seemed be­wil­dered, so I pointed out a child who was sit­ting with­out his seat-belt on and his re­ply was – ‘Oh he’s a big boy now, he doesn’t have to wear a seat-belt any­more’. And my child came home later in the day in tears say­ing that he was teased by ev­ery­body on the bus for be­ing a nerd by putting his seat-belt on. This is NOT AC­CEPT­ABLE!!!!!”


“Where is now that ‘beau­ti­ful mind’ from few weeks ago, ve­he­ment de­mand­ing that gov­ern­ment should make manda­tory trans­porta­tion by school bus for chil­dren… be­cause it’s more safe.”


“No seat belts on my daugh­ter’s school bus. Prices dou­bled last year with the ex­pla­na­tion that seat belt would be fit­ted, but no!”


“In none of the school buses chil­dren wear seat belts and some times chil­dren can be seen play­ing or roam­ing in­side the bus.”


“If par­ents don’t teach this need for seat belts, I re­ally don’t see how they can ex­pect a bus driver with 40+ chil­dren to man­age it”


“And we are sur­prised by this why when par­ents don’t make them wear seat­belts in their own cars?”
