School Bus Danger Zones

One life lost is one too many.

Despite every precaution, no matter how many warnings are distributed at every level of education, the unthinkable happens - somewhere a child is critically injured in a bussing accident. Bus companies, teachers and parents must never stop telling their children about the danger that lurks around our buses.

  • Stay out of the danger zone at all times!
  • Remember—if you can't see the driver, the driver can't see you!
  • Never go near the bus unless the driver has given you the signal to come!
  • Never, ever walk or play behind a vehicle!
  • When you go near the bus, always, always be sure you can see the bus driver!
  • If you drop anything in the danger zone leave it. Never, never stop to pick it up!
