School Bus Safety – Our Children are in Danger!
We all worry about our children when they’re out of our sight, but nobody ever expects to get the chilling and heartbreaking phone call that starts with, “I’m so sorry, there’s been an accident on the school bus…”
Sadly, some drivers on the road feel entitled to zip past a school bus that has its lights on and stop sign extended. Despite valiant efforts to curb this reckless behavior, these drivers continue to drive dangerously around our children. That’s why Mentor Public Schools has taken matters into their own hands and, with the aid of a $40,000 grant from the Ohio Attorney General’s office, installed security cameras on the school buses to catch people who illegally pass buses.
Mentor has been releasing these videos to the public in an effort to crack down on these reckless drivers. By making this information public, they hope to identify and penalize those who do illegally pass. Their goal, however, isn’t to increase arrests. It’s to change behavior, and it finally seems to be proving effective.
Of the nearly 1300 people who perished in the past decade due to this type of accident, nearly 300 of them were schoolchildren. This is appalling and unacceptable. As members of a community, we all need to work together to help protect our children. You can help keep our children safe by:
- Stopping ten feet in front or behind a stopped school bus
- Never passing on the right of the bus
- Being prepared to yield if the bus is flashing yellow lights
- Obeying all posted speed limits
- Remaining patient when you’re behind the wheel
