School Bus Safety


Story Updated: Aug 26, 2013

Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are almost gone and that means it's time to talk school specifically school bus safety.

The experts at Cincinnati Children's Hospital offer this advice.

Make sure your children arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is due... Discourage horseplay and instruct them to stay out of the street while they're waiting.

Once they climb aboard...encourage your kids to stay seated, facing forward, and to keep their head and arms inside. And no shouting or fooling around...extra noise and activity can distract the driver.

When it's time to get off...students should wait until the bus comes to a full stop.

If they have to cross the street, they should walk at least 10 feet in front of the bus so the driver can see them. It's best to have your child look left, right, left before stepping into the street to make sure no cars are coming.

One more important note, no talking to strangers when walking to and from the bus stop.
