This Story makes me want to STOP!!!

What part of STOP did you not understand ? Was it the S or the T or the O or the P ?

The school bus has put out the stop arm and the lights are flashing, these are the signals for me to stop..so I did…stop.

Very simple instructions to follow and it does not take a rocket scientist to do this…stop lights on, arm out…S T O P !

I did stop, the only problem is, is what does the car behind you do? You need to be aware of the front view and the back view…as a matter of fact you need to see all angles, as I have seen cars go between the bus and curb when the school bus has stopped. You need room and time to act and react. You finally get the opportunity to have your precious cargo bused safely to school ..you thought and then you get and idiot driver that is in a huge hurry or does not think the rules apply to them on the road and BANG !!! Huge accident occurs. You never know the outcome until it is too late.

So how about you drive like you own the car and not the road !

  1. Almost every day someone runs my reds. Yes we have cameras. Yes I have trained my kids how to safely cross.
    Kids are kids and they don’t always remember or listen.
    Yes it may hinder your time by 45 seconds to a couple minutes . We have laws and policy to follow. We put our yellow lights on to warn you that we’re about to stop. We then put our red lights on and the stop arm comes out. We check traffic before we stop. The kids then get dismissed. I have multiple kids getting off. I have to make sure parents are there , while still watching traffic. We cross students. We check traffic again and in all of our mirrors before we signal a child to cross.
    We’re still watching the kids that are left in the bus as well . We do so much in a few seconds . If you don’t stop you are putting all of my kids in jeopardy . Please people,
    Slow down and then stop. Lives are in your hands.

    • Thank yo for your response. I am amazed at the ignorance of some drivers ..I can not believe my eyes.
      School bus drivers have a huge responsibility. Bless you one and all!
