Ask a Trooper: School bus safety advice
September 11, 2020
Sgt. Neil Dickenson of the Minnesota State Patrol offers some timely reminders on safety around school buses as the new school year starts up:
• Parents should discuss and demonstrate pedestrian safety with their children and reinforce safe crossing after exiting a bus.
• When getting off a bus, look to be sure no cars are passing on the shoulder.
• Before crossing the street, wait until the driver’s face can be seen. Wait for the driver to signal that it’s safe to cross.
• Look left, right, and then left again when coming to the edge of the bus to make sure traffic is stopped....
