Issue

On certain buses, the latching mechanism of the driver's seat belt buckle may prevent the tongue of the seat belt from being inserted into the latch assembly. If the seat belt is unable to be latched, and the vehicle is operated without the seat belt fastened, in the event of a crash, the risk of injury to the driver could be increased. Correction: Owners will be advised to inspect the date code of the seat belt buckle, and replacement parts will be supplied as necessary.
