Did you know...
A School Bus is:
172 times safer than your family automobile.
8 times safer than passenger trains.
4 times safer than transit buses.
4 times safer than intercity buses.
8 times safer than scheduled airlines.
Every year, approximately 440,000 public school buses travel 4.3 billion miles to transport 23.5 million to and from school and school-related activities. Swartz Creek Transportation covers 71.43 square miles.
Be aware it is illegal in every state to pass a school bus stopped to load/unload students.
Know and understand laws governing motorist’s driving behavior near a school bus.
Learn the "flashing signal light system" that school bus drivers use to alert motorists if they are going to stop to load/unload students.
Know and understand that yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles.
Know and understand that red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate that the bus has stopped, and that children are getting on or off. Motorists MUST stop their cars.
Begin moving only when the red flashing lights are turned off.
Watch out for young people who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking about getting there safely.
Slow Down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in the neighborhood. Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops.
Be Alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
