School Bus Safety Week

Florida’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Coalition is partnering with the Florida Highway Patrol and the National Coalition for Safer Roads to distribute School Bus Safety Materials and information this week in support of National School Bus Safety Week.

Safety officials maintain that buses are the safest way for children to get to and from school. They’re designed to be safe. But while the bus itself is safe, drivers failing to stop for school buses is a huge concern.
Safety should be on all everyone’s minds every time they drive.

Let this be a reminder to each of us to be especially cautious during our morning and afternoon commutes when children are boarding and getting off school buses. As we promote School Bus Safety Week, lets be the example for others to follow.
