With classes back in session, school buses are back on the roads. Every day, school buses transport 25 million students to and from school.
School buses are deemed the safest form of transportation because they are the most regulated vehicles on the road. They are designed for safety and include features such as flashing lights, giant mirrors, and stop-sign arms. Their color and size also make them easy to notice. Students are 70 percent more likely to get to school safely when taking a school bus instead of traveling by car.
The greatest risk students face is not riding a bus but walking to the bus stop and getting on and off the bus. Approximately two-thirds of school bus-related fatalities of children occur when they are outside the bus.
Everyone must make safety a top priority, especially now that school is in session and many children will be riding the school bus. The Philadelphia bus accident lawyers at McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC offer school bus safety tips in the infographic below to keep students safe.
