Health Tip: Stay Safe Around the School Bus

Health Tip: Stay Safe Around the School Bus


(HealthDay News) -- Teaching children to take precautions while waiting for, entering and exiting a school bus can help keep them safe.

The National Safety Council offers these suggestions:

  • Wait for the bus far away from traffic. Stay on the sidewalk, and pay attention to passing cars.
  • Use the handrail while entering and exiting the bus.
  • Don't approach the bus until it has completely stopped, and the door is open.
  • Allow at least 10 feet clearance if you cross the street in front of the bus. Wait for the driver to tell you that it's safe to cross.
  • Make sure the driver can see where you are after you've left the vehicle.
  • Stay well away from the bus's rear wheels.
