Evidently, research shows that seat belts don't work the same way they do in heavy buses than cars. Buses are actually very safe due the the fact that they are so heavy, and that the large seats act as make-shift air bags in the event of a collision. That's why the buss driver has one and not the kids; the buss driver has no seat in front of him to lessen the impact.    
   
Seat belts are actually required in buses that are under 10k lbs. And according to national statistics less than 100 children die a year in buss related accidents. while it's something like 1000 die each year by walking, biking, or driving to school. Seat belts are also make buses much more expensive, since it puts more of a limit on how many children can be on the buss.    
   
I mean, if the buss starts tumbling over the side of the road into a ditch your pretty 						******					 either way. But when it comes to collisions with other vehicles the impact that the passengers receive is usually against the seats.   
   
So yeah. That's why.

Studies have shown that young children make very good airbags in a collision

It's simple really. One person dead is a tragedy, fifty is a statistic.

Fact: Busses were first used only for the elderly and it was deemed no big loss in the event of a crash. When busses were repurposed for school children it was still deemed no big loss in the event of a crash.

When schoolbuses were first starting to become in use, yes, there were seatbelts.

However, as the years went on, it became impractical to use them because:

1) Kids often didn't wear them, and **** me if I had to make sure 30+ unruly little ***** were all buckled in for every goddamn ride to and from school; it would take FOREVER.
2) There were a lot of reported injuries from children hitting each other with them.
3) The crash physics on a bus are different. A schoolbus is a HUGE vehicle and the passengers are seated much higher, making them safer in the case of a side collision. Plus, the backs of the seats are built so the child will be thrown into it and be cushioned in the impact. I'm not saying it doesn't hurt, but it's safe.
