School Bus Safety


Even safer than riding in your own vehicle, riding on a school bus is the safest way for your child to travel to and from school. The greatest risk is not riding the school bus, but approaching or leaving it, so children need to be especially careful around the school bus “danger zone,” which is the 10 feet in front, behind and on each side of the school bus.
