Last week we got a text from John in Buffalo regarding school bus stops:
Good morning Laura. Here's a topic for you to discuss in the morning with your listeners. So I'm driving to work and I'm behind a school bus. This bus is picking up children on their way to school...
As my son Dylan prepares to start second grade at Highland Elementary School in Derby New York, we're teaching him to be on his best behavior while riding the school bus.
Recently, a school bus driver in Canada was about to be fired after he was seen throwing a student and his backpack out onto the road, forcing the child to walk 10 blocks to his house. But, you do need to see the whole story.
How could this happen? Actually quite easily when a bus driver isn't paying attention and a little girl isn't careful with her back pack. The young girl, who's name has been kept private so far, was hospitalized and treated for road rash to her legs and fortunately, her injuries were non-life-threatening.
You're about to see a news report featuring shocking video of a school bus crash which sent several children to the hospital with minor injuries. Tulsa, Oklahoma police officers say the driver of an SUV was speeding, lost control, crossed the center median, and hit the school bus full of kids.
As a dad of a first grader who’s actually seen kids almost get hit by an impatient driver who thinks their time is more valuable than anyone else, it’s simply infuriating! And what's the bus driver to do to catch up to the speed demon and confront them? Well, there's not a lot they can do, until now.
As a parent of school age children, I'm so proud of these kids and support them 100%! We expect our school bus drivers to be trained professionals. Who would ever think that the bus driver would be drunk? And it happened in our own backyard of Alfred in the Allegheny County school district, back in 2010.
