You make sure your kids are buckled up in your car, but on a school bus - there are no seat belts. In some states, bus seat belts are required and in South Carolina, they are not required by the state or federal law.
School buses are proven to be the safest transportation to get kids to school. With this in mind, arguments have been made against having seat belts due to the cost while others say anything that can be done to keep kids safe on buses is a good thing.
Live 5's Carter Coyle investigates if the cost of seat belts is worth making buses safer. No Belts on Board, a Live 5 News investigation, airs Tuesday at 11 p.m.
