How Bus Drivers Get Into Trouble Program 5

This is a 1- hour course.

This unit puts a face on the tragedy of bus route and stop fatalities. Of the 17 children killed in 2008-09, 10 were struck by their own bus. The other 7 were struck by passing vehicles. Guidelines for safe stops and routes are discussed.

Loading zones at schools require a slightly different procedure than loading and unloading on routes. Traffic during school opening and dismissal can be confusing for children.

Child endangerment is the issue and post trip checks using a child alarm system or empty bus sign is essential. But thats not the only way you can get into trouble leaving students unattended.

The course costs $12.95 per participant.
