Kids Talk Bus Safety

Dear Editor;

After reading about the school bus accident (Wave, April 8, 2000), I think there should be seatbelts on the buses and there should be a matron to put the seatbelts on the kids if they don’t want to put it on. If the kid won’t allow the matron to put the seatbelt on, the buss driver should suspend the child off the bus for a week and let the parent deal with their child. The bus should also have more seats so that the kids won’t have to stand because you never know if another driver could run a red light and crash into the bus.

Dear Editor;

Boy, do I feel bad about what happened to that bus on April 4. There are some things that buses should definitely have, such as seatbelts, matrons or aides, window controls, assign big kids to help the little ones, don’t fight, and sit and be quit.

I think the accident that occurred was not supposed to happen. The guy who had a suspended license should be put in jail.

I feel bad for all the parents of the kids on the bus. After this accident some parents won’t be so sure if it’s safe to go on the bus.

Dear Editor;

After reading about the school bus accident it got me thinking. We need safe buses to keep our kids safe. If we do get safer buses it will narrow down how many kids are killed each year. We need to get seatbelts on the buses! We can also get aides on the buses to keep the kids quiet so it won’t distract the bus driver.

If kids are bad they should be suspended or kicked off the bus. We could also have assigned seats.

If we start to add some of the ideas on the bus they would be a lot safer!
