Bus Safety

August 26, 2012

With school starting in 8 days, it is time to get ready to have school buses back on the road.

On August 20, 2012, The National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS) released the final results of the 2012 survey on the number of drivers who broke the law (and put children in danger) by driving past the stop-arm of a stopped school bus with red lights flashing.

“The second national stop-arm running count found 88,025 violations in a day, up from last year’s count of 76,685.The increase in violations counted comes despite the fact that there were fewer school bus drivers involved in this year’s survey: 99,930 bus drivers in 2012, compared to 111,914 in 2011.”

Here is a video a 90 second video produced by the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District that reminds us all about bus safety:
