August 17 #BestRideChat Twitter Party – School Buses and Seat Belts

Posted by

Depending on what part of the country you’re in, you’ve either sent kids back to school, or you’re back-to-school shopping. Unless you’re from one of four states, though, your kids aren’t required to wear seat belts on the bus, and it’s alarming for a lot of parents and kids. Join us at #BestRideChat August 17 from 8-9 p.m. EST and find out why.

Come join us on August 17th from 8:00 p.m. EST to 9:00 p.m. EST to chat about regulations in your state, why NHTSA hasn’t mandated school buses have seat belts across the country, and why school bus manufacturers feel that buses are safe without seat belts.

Those who RSVP for the Twitter party will be eligible to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards to help defray the cost of back-to-school shopping. (Standard rules apply.)
