Why don’t bus drivers have to wear seat belts?
Name: Simon, Harlesden
Qualification: Bus enthusiast, and has ‘seen it’ himself and asked them why. Loves transport in general.
Answer: On older buses, they don’t wear seat belts. On newer buses, they do wear seat belts because of newly-enforced safety rules.

Qualification: Used to be a bus driver
Answer:They don’t have to wear a seatbelt, because they are travelling less than 500m per stop, which means they don't have to wear one.
