The vast majority of school bus accidents and injuries to students occur outside of the bus in this danger zone.
NEVER GO UNDER OR NEAR THE BUS TO RETRIEVE PAPERS OR OTHER OBJECTS.
The driver may not be able to see you!
Students are directed to be no closer than 12 feet to the bus, except when loading and unloading. If students drop papers, lunch boxes or other objects while loading or unloading from the bus the students MUST get the attention of the driver.
