School buses populate our roads mostly in the early morning and mid to late afternoon hours. All drivers should proceed with caution and slow their speed down when driving near a school bus or a school bus stop. Far too many injuries are sustained by children riding school buses every year. Safer driving free of driver distraction can help prevent or reduce the number of school bus accidents and resulting child injuries.
