Practice School Bus Safety

One of the most dangerous situations involving school buses is when children get on and get off of these vehicles. While most children learn school bus safety rules, not all students remember to follow them. Whether you drive close to school buses or transport your children to school, you should remember to apply extra caution. Some of the most helpful steps that people can take when traveling around school buses include:

  • Cautiously approach a school bus when its lights are flashing yellow
  • Drive with the highest degree of care possible when you notice children walking on the street or around school buses
  • If a school bus’s lights are flashing, kids are likely in a hurry to get on the bus or home from school and in their hurry might forget safety rules

Safety Steps Students Should Remember to Follow

Students should follow some important safety precautions involving school buses to decrease their chances of ending up in an accident. Some of these safety steps include:

  • Arrive at the school bus stop several minutes early to reduce reasons for rushing
  • Look to your left and right while crossing the road
  • Make sure that the school bus has come to a complete stop before getting on or off
  • Make sure to only walk on sidewalks
  • Never accept a ride from a stranger you meet near the school bus stop
  • Only cross the street in designated areas
  • Only face the traffic while walking on streets that are not equipped with sidewalks
  • Stay away from the road while waiting for the bus
  • Try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the road to increase visibility
