School Bus Safety Tips
Back-to-school means back to busy streets. Review these bus safety tips from the National Highway Safety Administration with your kids to help them stay safe:
- Getting on the bus: walk with an adult to the bus stop, wait five giant steps back from the road and wait until the driver tells you it’s safe to board the bus.
- On the bus: go straight to your seat, face forward and listen to the driver.
- Getting off the bus: watch for cars, take five giant steps away from the bus, look left-right-left for oncoming cars before crossing the street. Wait for the driver to signal that it’s safe to cross.
