SCHOOL BUS SAFETY TIPS FOR KIDS
Parents play a large role in helping keep kids safe while riding the school bus. Greenville Police Sergeant Deb Kasuraskiss asks parents to please talk to their children about being safe at bus stops and while on the school bus. Here are some safety tips and advice Deb says parents should frequently tell kids.
Kids, do not wrestle or goof around while waiting at a bus stop. You could easily be in the way of traffic before realizing it. Don’t talk to or accept rides from strangers. If a stranger offers you a ride, report it to local police by calling 911 or tell your bus driver. Always wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before approaching. While on the bus, don’t distract the driver. Taking the driver’s attention from the road could result in an accident. Look both ways before crossing the road or street in front of a bus. Never assume the driver of a car will see you and stop. Sometimes they don’t see kids around the bus. Obey all rules of the bus and respect the driver and other students.
