Who would think that most school bus accidents occur when the bus isn’t even moving? Well, it is true. Most of the time when children are injured in a school bus accident, the injury doesn’t occur when they are riding the actual bus. Instead, accidents most often occur when children are getting on and off of the bus, when safety procedures are not in place, or enforced.
It is very critical for school districts, bus routes, bus drivers, parents, and children to be aware of the safety procedure in place. The reinforcement of effective safety procedures will help to ensure children are safe while on the school bus.
