School Bus Safety Advice

When you wait for a bus, stand on the pavement well back from the traffic. It is dangerous to play around at bus stops.

Wait for people to get off the bus before you get on.

Always do what the driver tells you and do not distract him.

If you do need to cross the road after getting off a bus, wait for it to move away first.

Remember -Drivers need to concentrate on what they are doing. Make sure that you do not distract the driver, no matter what vehicle you are travelling in.

Where seatbelts are provided always use them.

To enable teachers to teach good behaviour on school transport, a number of useful teaching resource packs are available on free loan from the Road Safety Centre. For further details, contact the Road Safety Centre.
