A petition has been filed against school buses running without the seat belts. As per the petition, the infrastructure of the roads in big cities is worsening day by day which puts many innocent lives on stake. Students travelling from school buses face risk of life daily.
The petition has asked the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to mandate the seat belts in all the school buses across the country for the safety of children in case of any mishap.
If the schools do not ply with a rule then it should be considered as legal offence and penalty should be imposed on the institution, the petition added.
I am a citizen of India and I feel fining for car seat belts and ignoring child safety is not correct.petitioner
