School Bus Safety-Danger Zone

STA, our school transportation partner, is always seeking out new ways to improve the safety and well-being for our students. STA is pleased to share with us a new safety initiative with the School Bus Safety Company (SBSC), the industry’s leader in school bus driver safety & training material.

In an effort to bring further attention to child safety on and around the school bus, they have partnered with SBSC to release a series of student safety videos. The first video to be released in this series focuses on school bus “danger zones”. These are the areas around a school bus where passengers have the greatest risk of getting hurt, or worse, because the danger zones are the areas where bus drivers have limited visibility.
