Petition of Te Arahi Kapea: School buses to provide and secure all students with seatbelts

Published date: 4 May 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives require all school buses to provide seatbelts and make use of the seatbelts compulsory.

Petition reason

The safety and security of all our Tamariki by requiring them to wear seatbelts in buses when they catch allocated school buses to and from schools and school trips. It is an offence to not wear seatbelts when travelling in a vehicle, yet thousands of our most vulnerable citizens travel in large numbers and are sometimes crammed into buses unsecured and exposed to possible injury and death.
