Some 20,000 Israeli school students will be unable to travel to school on Sunday since their Egged schools busses have not yet been fitted with safety belts, it was reported on Saturday night. The bus company said that after an examination of its vehicles it was not yet possible to fit the belts in several intra-city school busses and it would not break the new safety regulations, even for these journeys. The Education Ministry said that the problem was in the hands of the Transportation Ministry, whose duty its was to enable children to travel to school and who needed to allow time for the new law to be enforced. Education Minister Yuli Tamir met with Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz in an effort to solve the problem.
