Children are the future of the country. So many innocent lives are lost during school bus accidents that occur due to rash and unsafe driving of the bus drivers. And major of them happen due to the improper management and maintenance of the bus contractors. For a country like India, the transport system for these kids is very miserable.

School bus starts with you, every morning and every afternoon. Take a few minutes to make sure that all of us understand the rules of the road.

  • Display the school bus sign when in use – To inform the nearby cars of the school bus.
  • Discourage speeding. – Bus drivers should know that there is no need to drive fast and endanger the lives of the children.
  • Seating Discipline – It is always good to make sure that students are properly seated. It is a key safety factor. We should ensure that passengers are resting fully within the 'safety compartment' of the seat - i.e., there no body parts extended into the gangway.
  • Children need to be seated immediately upon entering the bus. They should not stand or move from place to place while the bus is in motion.
  • Bus drivers should know that there is no need to speed and risk the lives of the children.
  • It is good to ensure that windows and doors are to be opened or closed only with the permission of the bus driver. If allowed, windows should only be opened to the indicated safety line.
  • There should be no indecent conduct or loud, disruptive or profane use of language.

It is always good to give tips to the drivers by their contractors, as it will help them to ensure safety measures both on & off the road. We can always change the wrong things. And it is our duty as a nation to provide better facilities to the future of this country.
