    Buckle up on minibuses!

    Beginning August 1, if the minibus you're riding has seatbelts, make sure you buckle yours up for safety.

    Under a new law, anyone who doesn't buckle up on a minibus - if it has seatbelts - will be subject to a maximum fine of $5,000 and three months' imprisonment.

    Drivers may refuse to drive if a passenger will not wear a seat belt. This causes inconvenience to all the other passengers, too.

    Each seat belt must be used by one person at a time. If two kids take up one seat and count as one adult, only one of you have to wear the seat belt.

    The recent SERIOUS minibus accident says it all. People (drivers and passengers alike) who don't wear seatbelts are simply stupid.

    with the way some of those minibus drivers drive ... who wouldn't wear a belt!?!?!?! I took my dad on one while he came to HK to visit and after 1 ride, he swore off minibuses the rest of the time. And he loves public transport!!!!!!!!! He wouldn't stop cursing the whole ride from Happy Valley to Causeway Bay.
