Question:

Can a traffic officer summons a coach(bus) driver if the passengers on board did not wear their safety belts. I am talking about 65 seater double decker.

Answer:

Technically a double deck bus does not have to have seatbelts fitted. However reg 213 states that if a seatbelt is fitted to a seat the person must wear it. Subreg (11) states that the driver must ensure the passengers wear their seat belts, so yes.
