School buses make frequent stops to pick up children, and it is crucial for drivers to stop. Pennsylvania school bus stopping laws require the following:
It is also important for parents to talk to their children about boarding and exiting the bus. They need to remind them to stay alert when they are getting on and off the bus. If they are with their friends, they need to avoid playing and running around with them when trying to get on or off the bus. If they have to cross a street, they need to always cross in front of the bus. Before crossing, they need to look to the left, right and then the left again to make sure no cars are approaching.
If your child was injured in a bus accident, they have legal rights and may receive financial compensation for their medical expenses and pain and suffering.
