School Bus Safety

School just started across California, which means that many school buses are traveling the streets. For some 25 million students throughout the United States, the school day begins and ends with a trip on a school bus. Unfortunately, every year children are injured and many are killed in school bus accidents.

Although drivers are required to stop for a school bus when it's stopped to load or unload passengers, children should not rely on them to do so. It is important to teach your children the school bus safety rules that address behavior both on and off the bus:

  • When waiting for the bus, stay away from traffic
  • Avoid roughhousing and carelessness
  • Do not stray onto the street
  • Form a line that is away from the street as the school bus approaches
  • Passengers should remain seated, keeping their hands to themselves
  • Screaming and fighting is a serious distraction to the bus driver
  • Wait until the bus has completely stopped and the door opens before stepping into the road
  • Use the handrail when stepping onto the bus

A school bus accident may occur as the result of driver error or negligence, or because of the actions of one of the passengers.

If your child has been injured while on the school bus, contact the personal injury attorneys of Peach & Weathers, we are dedicated to protecting the legal rights of injured students by holding those responsible.
