WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is taking steps to make large buses safer.

Lap and shoulder seat belts will be required for passengers and the driver on all commercial buses.

Officials say the move will reduce the risk of fatalities, serious injuries and lower the risk of people being ejected in rollover crashes.
