Last month was National School Bus Safety Month. Did you know that? Don’t feel bad if you didn’t. Some places put a lot more energy into promoting the fact than others did.
For example, we came across one item marking the safety month which ran just about a week ago, right at the end of the month. And regardless of whether the issue got specific highlighting during October or not, we know there are many in the Cleveland area who would agree that focusing attention on bus safety is something that deserves to be done all year long — certainly during the school year, but even through the summer.
So here are a few tips as offered up by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on things that parents and children can follow to make sure that young pupils get to and from school in the safest way possible.
That there is a need for these reminders is obvious. We live in a time when children and drivers of all ages are lured into a kind of attention deficit tunnel due to mobile technology. Not only is texting and driving the cause of many an accident, but so is texting and walking, or even chatting on the cell phone. It doesn’t take much for anyone to be distracted.
School buses get children to school and home safer than other forms of transportation. Still accidents do occur and serious injuries are possible. Victims should know that an attorney’s help could be important in seeking proper compensation.
