10:17 am on 30 October 2012

A school bus safety advisory committee has told the New South Wales state government that buses in rural and regional areas should have seat belts installed.

The advisory committee looked at the dangers that school children face every day when travelling to and from school.

Th ABC reports three children in New South Wales have died in bus crashes over the last decade and 624 others were injured.

The committee was set up in April last year specifically to look at school bus safety in remote areas of the state. It has made 35 recommendations.
