Call for tougher school bus safety

Call for tougher school bus safety Malcolm Bruce introduces Private Members Bill.
LIBDEM MP Malcolm Bruce has presented a Private Members Bill in parliament calling for the law to be toughened on school bus safety. Bruce says he has the backing of MPs from across the political spectrum who agree it should be illegal for vehicles to overtake a stationary school bus. The Bill also calls for safety training of drivers and pupils, and for the establishment of a School Bus Safety Council.

“Following consultation with safety experts and campaigners on this issue, I am pleased to be putting before parliament this Bill which will I hope will stimulate debate on this important issue and force the government to re-examine its position on preventing vehicles from overtaking stationary school buses,” says Bruce.
