Oh wait, I forget, this is Singapore

“The Singapore School Transport Association reiterated on Saturday that making seat belts mandatory on school buses will reduce their seating capacity.”

Not making them mandatory will also reduce the number of kids taking school buses because they get hurt and killed. Idiots.

Wait, there’s more:

” ‘Implementation is likely to take longer. We need to give schools, parents and bus operators time to adjust to the changes. We want a smooth transition,’ said Mr Jeremy Yap, LTA’s group director for vehicle and transit licensing. “

Complete and utter crap given that they didn’t take very long to implement the very ill-advised no-taxi-stopping-except-at-taxi-stands-because-we-think-it’s-a-good-idea rule.

They’ll adjust to the changes only when more kids die and get hurt. Geddit?
