School in Session: Drivers Should be Safe Around Buses

As the calendar turns from August to September, the summer begins to close. Fall is fast approaching. Students of all ages are headed back to the classroom. Many children in the Austin area rely upon buses for transportation to and from school, and this means it is a great time for motorists to set aside some time to refresh their memories concerning bus safety.

When drivers see a school bus, they should realize that they will need to pay extra close attention to things happening around them. When a school bus is stopped with its red lights flashing, it is illegal for motorists to pass the bus. Also, children will run either toward or from the school bus, and may enter lanes of traffic at unexpected times. Drivers need to be ready to stop at a moment's notice to avoid having a car accident.

Drivers should also be alert any time they are driving at a time when children might be walking to or from school. When on familiar roads, it is easy to get trapped into a routine and lose focus. Take a moment to look for children walking before backing out of any driveways.

It might be a very good idea for parents to talk to their children about these issues as well. Help them learn and understand some of the things that they can do to make sure that they can be easily seen by those on the roadways. This can help everyone avoid these tragic accidents.
