Drivers and passengers in cars are required to wear seat belts or in the case of children under a certain age or weight, to be in a child safety seat. However, children who ride in school buses have no such protection. Interestingly, the people who should be putting children's safety at the forefront of their concerns don't seem to favor the use of seat belts in school buses. Bus drivers have expressed strong opposition to them.
Fault finding isn't as simple as many Cook County residents realize. Who would you assume is responsible for injuries caused by a school bus accident? Your first choice might be a driver, since driver errors cause many accidents.
