Please stop for the school bus

Wowsers!

I had to watch this news story two times to really get my head wrapped around it.

 

Mornings are busy for multigenerational families, well…families in general.

I was a bit shocked to hear the matriarch talk about the bus driver taking too long talking to the parent of a physically disabled child. What parent or grandparent wouldn’t appreciate their child being well looked after once you hand them off to a school bus driver?

And…if this busy multigenerational family knows what time the bus stops by their home – and they do not have time to wait for the bus – why wouldn’t they adjust their leaving time?

Leave earlier or later – to avoid the school bus all together. Revise your morning routine so you do not have to speed out of your driveway – but don’t drive on the sidewalk.

None of us are in such a rush that we have to jeopardize the safety of children.

That’s just foolish!

What do you think?

  1. It’s a shame that this even needs to be said. I don’t care how long the bus driver took, you can’t disregard the safety of the children on the bus just because you’re in a hurry or you’ve got someplace to be (not “you” as in the author, but in general).

    I’ve seen people arrested for driving around a school bus in the passing lane.

  2. It’s a shame that this even needs to be said. To disregard the safety of the children on the bus is a horrible thing to do, regardless of how long the bus driver was stopped. I’ve witnessed people get arrested for passing a stopped school bus in the passing lane of a deserted road.
