Montreal,QUE,CAN -The Gazette/Warren Mayhew letter -July 24, 2014: -- I totally agree with the Gazette’s view that all new tour buses should be built with seatbelts for all passengers... I would go even further and require that current tour buses without passenger seatbelts be required to be retrofitted and seatbelts installed... This requirement should also apply to all inter-city buses as well. Companies should be given a time frame to have the seatbelts installed on their current fleet... I know there is a cost involved, but without this requirement, it would take many years for the current buses to be retired and to make all buses safer... Our laws already require that all human occupants of cars and trucks wear seatbelts. These laws should be extended making it mandatory for drivers and passengers of tour and inter-city buses to wear seatbelts... It would help keep people in their seats, instead of becoming flying projectiles, in the case of a crash...
