Seat belt wearing policy
Schools should have a Seat Belt Policy. The policy should detail how seat belt wearing will be enforced. Parents and carers should be aware of this so that they can ensure their child clearly understands the seat belt rules and complies with them. Schools must be fully up to date with seat belt legislation and know how safety belts are to be worn. Incorrectly worn safety belts are a significant safety risk to the wearer. Incorrectly worn belts also carries the same legal penalty as not wearing a belt at all.
