Are you willing to help save our children from injury?

Please consider helping by becoming a bus seat belt advocate-
Our kids deserve to be safe!!
RE: Submissions due by Friday 23rd September to School Bus Safety Community Advisory Committee

Thousands of children are being hurt, maimed and sometimes killed, simply because they don't have a lap/sash or 3-point seat belt on their school bus - even when travelling on high speed, high risk roads and highways.

Safety is a high priority these days and we know seat belts save lives, so to prevent injuries and deaths on our roads, children on buses must be able to buckle up too.

Please see the attached fact sheet & web links below to help with your submission: (this has list of ideas to include in your submission)
In part from the Media Release:
“We want our recommendations to the Government to be practical and to be drawn from feedback we receive from the community.
The closing date for submissions is 23 September 2011.
All submissions will be published unless there is a request from the author that they remain confidential.
Submissions can be submitted via email to: or mailed to:
Carolyn Walsh
Independent Chair
School Bus Safety Community Advisory Committee
C/- Department of Transport
PO Box K659
Further information about the Committee and information about making a submission
can be obtained from the Committee Secretariat on (02) 9689 8838.

Submissions don't need to be lengthy - the more submissions about the need for seat belts, the better chance we have of success.
If you'd like any help or have questions, just ring me.
Thanks for your help.
