Nassau County Bus Accident Lawyers
School Bus Accident Lawyer in Nassau County
Over 23 million school-aged children use school buses to get to school each day in the United States. We trust school bus drivers with our most precious valuables: Our kids. When school bus drivers make mistakes or behave irresponsibly—or if other drivers ignore the rules of the road and endanger children—the results can be catastrophic.
You can help protect your child stay safe on the ride to and from school by emphasizing these school bus safety rules:
- Always walk—don’t run—to the bus stop
- Get to the bus stop five minutes before arrival
- Don’t run or play at the bus stop; wait a safe distance from the road
- Stay on the sidewalk
- If there is no sidewalk, face traffic and walk on the left side of the road
- Never speak to strangers at the bus stop or get a ride with a stranger
- Wait to cross the street to the bus until you see the red flashing lights and stop sign extended
- Look both ways—left, right, and left once more—before you gross
- Don’t play with the emergency exits
- In an emergency, listen to the driver
- Don’t distract the driver
- Take three steps from the door to be away from moving wheels and cars once you get off
- Don’t try to get back on the bus if you leave something behind
- if you drop something on the ground outside the bus, tell the driver before picking it up
