As National School Bus Safety Week continues, we want to remind all Texans to do their part to ensure school buses and the children who ride them arrive safely at their destination. Check out the safety tips below, and stay tuned for more important safety reminders throughout the week.
🚌 Ensure children know how to look both ways before crossing streets. Also, teach children to watch for vehicles pulling out of nearby driveways. 🚌 When a child is getting off the bus and needs to cross the street, make sure they don’t assume traffic will stop for them just because a bus has its stop arm out and lights flashing. Always look both ways before crossing. 🚌 Children should not stand or play in the street while waiting for the bus.
