DES MOINES, Iowa -- Are seatbelts necessary on school buses? Do they increase safety for students?
The Des Moines School District thinks their buses should have them, and last year the district paid to outfit two of its buses. This year, it added eight more.
Fortunately, crashes with school buses are rare, but approximately six children a year still died in bus-related crashes.
On Monday night, Dave Price looks at what it costs to put seatbelts on school buses and whether they really make kids any safety. Tune in at 10 p.m. on Channel 13.
