According to the American School Bus Council, school buses are the safest form of transportation – 50 times safer when students ride in cars with other students and 8 times safer than riding in cars driven by their parents or other adults.
Students are instructed by their drivers on safe practices while riding a school bus. Students are expected to exhibit classroom behavior in order to minimize distractions to the driver while they are operating the bus.
