What is the seat belt used for on a bus?
The seat belt is used to protect the occupants of a vehicle in the event of an accident. Wearing a seat belt helps restrain occupants in their seats, reducing the risk of serious or fatal injury in a crash. The seat belt works by distributing the force of an impact across the strongest part of the body, such as the back and shoulders, and prevents occupants from being thrown forward or to the sides. It also helps keep the driver in position to control the vehicle more effectively in the event of a sharp maneuver or roadside emergency. In summary, the seat belt is a crucial measure to increase the road safety.
Why is it important to wear a seat belt on the bus?
It is important to wear a seat belt on a bus for several reasons:

Are 2 or 3 point seatbelts better on buses?
Three-point seat belts are a rare option on coaches, buses, and passenger trucks. A three-point seat belt consists of two straps that go over the shoulder and one that goes over the pelvic bone. This configuration allows distribute the force of an impact through the strongest areas of the body and helps prevent serious injuries in the event of an accident. In addition, three-point seat belts are more effective than two-point seat belts (only one strap over the shoulder) in holding occupants in their seats and reducing the risk of injury.
