School bus overcrowding unacceptable


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— I have just read the story about overcrowding — and a picture to show it — of the students being forced to sit four to a seat and some in the aisles. How absurd is this that our children are in such danger! Personally I have never understood why there are no seat belts on a school bus, especially when it is a law in a car that you have to wear them!  School officials need to look into this and correct what is a very dangerous situation for our children and the school bus driver. Our children are precious cargo and deserve better.
