Why don't London bus drivers wear seat belts?

Question

Why do London bus drivers not wear seat belts? I see it regularly on the roads.
David, Near Buckingham Palace

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Rob, Chislehurst
Qualification: Minicab driver
Answer: It is to allow them to react to incidents on their buses as quickly as possible. It also reduces the prospect of an angry customer throttling them with their seatbelt!
