Help Us Catch Violators!
WBBCF has received very disturbing news. We recently learned that misinformation is circulating in the schools that compliance with Ahley and Alicia's Law is voluntary. That is absolutely incorrect! All school districts need to do is read the law…it states "a bus...shall be equipped". TEA has committed the money for reimbursement. Here is a link to the law: Texas Transportation Code 547.701(e): http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/TN/htm/TN.547.htm
If your school district is violating the law (or you know of a district that is), and has received new buses after Sept. 1 that don’t have lap-shoulder seat belts for each passenger, please let us know. We want to let the Department of Public Safety know who the violators are and keep those buses off the road until seat belts are properly installed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
