I know its not illeagal but would you be happy to let your 3 year old child go on a hour long (each way) coach journey on a coach with only a lap strap for a school trip? I dont want to make a fuss about this as so far nobody at the school can see the issue with it and a 'safe' bus may cost too much money so dont want to jeapordise the trip or make it unafordable for less well off families. AIBU reasonable should I just go with it?
Crash ratings in vehicles are against immovable objects. In most real accidents the collisions are between movable objects. Do you think it's especially important what someone in a coach is wearing when it hits a family hatchback?
Would you let them on a bus with no seatbelts?
Our fleet of school minibuses have lap belts and we're yet to have a complaint.
Reminds me of a time a mother said her son wasn’t allowed to sit next to any strangers on the public bus we were taking to a museum (primary school outing). I had 60 children to look and by the time I took my seat he was happily sitting next to some old chap have a lovely chat!
