Keeping Children Safe In And Around The School Bus
Obstructed views and distracted drivers put children at risk, which is why it’s important that parents and educators talk to children about ways to stay safe in, and around the school bus.
Motorists put children’s lives in danger when they fail to stop for the school bus as it loads and unloads its passengers. Yet it’s estimated that over 10 million drivers illegally pass school buses every year. So it’s critical that motorists learn and follow the laws pertaining to school buses in their state.
ASBC developed material to inform motorists, parents and educators on what they can do to help keep children safe in.
- PASSING VEHICLES CAUSE AN ESTIMATED TWO-THIRDS OF SCHOOL BUS LOADING AND UNLOADING FATALITIES.
- ONE-THIRD OF CHILDREN WHO ARE KILLED OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL BUS ARE BETWEEN 5 AND 7 YEARS OLD.
- NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF SCHOOL BUS-RELATED FATALITIES OF SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN OCCUR OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL BUS.
