Every school day, almost 824,000 students travel in about 16,000 school vehicles?
The kids are heading back to school soon! School buses will be back out on the roads. Did you know that according to Transport Canada, the school bus is the safest mode of transportation for children? This is because of provincial legislation and regulation, vehicle design and construction, inspections and maintenance practices of the buses, operational policies and procedures and driver qualifications.
Let’s make sure we keep it safe by knowing the school bus rules as a driver and as a student. Drivers can be charged if they pass a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing up to $2000 and six demerit points just on their FIRST offence.
If you have children who are taking the school bus, it is important you review these safety tips with them.
Wishing all those returning to school a fun and productive year!
