School Bus Safety

While the government says school buses are the safest mode of transportation for students, it’s been a dangerous past few months for buses in East Texas. At least five recent area bus crashes have landed children and drivers in local hospitals. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, schoolchildren are safest riding back and forth to school on a bus.  That mode of transportation is considered safer than riding as a passenger in another vehicle. According to KETK-TV, from 2001-2009, one percent of student traffic fatalities during school driving hours involved buses, according to the department. 

Longview police spokeswoman Kristie Brian urged residents to use caution when traveling near a school bus, especially when it is loading and unloading students.
