Wheelchair Passenger Safety on Buses

It’s important to point out that the biggest problem has to do with the lack of practice and the lack of a thorough education to explain the significance of each of those straps for wheelchair passengers to safely ride in the bus. The drivers and often the passengers don’t realize that the chair, not the person, must be secured to the floor of the bus by law. The seat belt around the waist and/or over the shoulder is meant for an entirely different purpose.
