𝗦𝗖𝗛𝗢𝗢𝗟 𝗕𝗨𝗦 𝗦𝗔𝗙𝗘𝗧𝗬: 𝗗𝗢𝗘𝗦 𝗬𝗢𝗨𝗥 𝗖𝗛𝗜𝗟𝗗 𝗞𝗡𝗢𝗪 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗥𝗨𝗟𝗘𝗦?𝗦𝗛𝗘𝗥𝗜𝗙𝗙 𝗘𝗡𝗖𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗔𝗚𝗘𝗦 𝗦𝗔𝗙𝗘𝗧𝗬 𝗠𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗨𝗥𝗘𝗦 𝗧𝗢 𝗔𝗩𝗢𝗜𝗗 𝗜𝗡𝗝𝗨𝗥𝗬Every day millions of students use school buses as transportation to and from school. Although school buses represent the safest form of highway transportation, there are a number of safety factors of which both student and drivers should be aware. Hoping to ensure school bus safety, Sheriff Christopher of Haywood County encourages caution whenever school buses are present. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in recent years there were an average of 128 fatalities in school transportation-related traffic crashes each year and more school-aged pedestrians have been killed during the hours of 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. than any other time of day. “Children are often eager to get off the school bus because they are excited to tell their parents about all of the fun they had at school that day,” said Sheriff Christopher. “It is crucial that parents re-enforce the school bus safety rules children learn at school.”Sheriff Christopher also suggests that parents drive their child’s bus route with them to practice the proper safety precautions they can take to help ensure their child enjoys a safe ride to and from school. Sheriff Christopher encourages all parents to discuss the following safety measures with their children:𝗦𝗧𝗨𝗗𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗦 🚌 Always arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early. 🚌 While the bus is approaching make sure to stand at least three giant steps away from the curb, wait until the bus has come to a complete stop, the door opens, and the bus driver says that it’s OK to board. 🚌 Always walk on the sidewalk when preparing to cross the street near a bus. Make eye contact with the driver so that you are sure he or she sees you. 🚌 Never walk behind the bus. 🚌 If you are walking beside the bus, walk at least three giant steps away. 🚌 Use the handrail when entering and exiting the bus. Take extra precautions to make sure that clothing with drawstrings and book bags do not get caught in the handrail or door. 🚌 Never stop to pick something up that you have dropped when a bus is stopped. Tell the bus driver or wait until the bus has driven off to avoid not being seen by the driver.𝗠𝗢𝗧𝗢𝗥𝗜𝗦𝗧𝗦 🚗 Remember that children are unpredictable in their actions. Take extreme caution when traveling in a school zone. 🚗 If there are no sidewalks, drive cautiously. Be more alert to the possibility of children walking in the road. 🚗 Slow down and prepare to stop whenever you see yellow school bus lights flashing. 🚗 Never pass a school bus when there are flashing red lights and the stop arm is extended. This is a sign that children are getting on or off the bus. Motorists must wait until the red lights stop flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and the bus is moving before they can start driving again. 🚗 Learn and obey the school bus laws in North Carolina.
