Safety Tip for the New School Year!


  •  Be alert. Buses mean bus stops and bus stops are likely filled with children waiting to catch their ride. Be on watch for kids out on the sidewalks or crossing the street.
  • Go slow. When buses are present, children are present. Whether bus lights are flashing or not, it’s best to slow down incase kids dart out into the street or the bus makes a sudden stop or turn.
  • Leave plenty of space. The 10 ft area surrounding a school bus is the most dangerous for children. Help bus drivers by giving them a wide berth and clear view of the area around them when driving or stopped behind them.
  • Learn the school bus laws. Yellow or red flashing lights and a stop sign arm extended indicate children are preparing to load or unload from the bus and a signal for you to prepare to stop. REMINDER: It is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. School bus safety is extremely important – not only because it could be potentially life saving, but because it’s shows courtesy to others.
