I've been asked about my position on crowding students into seats. This transporter asked, referring to my video "PUTTING THE BRAKES ON HARASSMENT: TRAINING FOR SCHOOL BUS DRIVER, "you show middle and high school students sitting two to a 39 inch seat, as you can see two is fine. What about 3 football players in a 39 inch seat (13 inches per player)? traveling down the freeway at 65 mph?
Is there protection for someone sitting halfway on and halfway off?"
What do you think? I'm of the opinion that, if litigated, a school district could be pretty vulnerable to liability for injury that can be shown to be directly connected to this seating practice. I'm interested in "the standard of the industry." I'd like to hear from you.
