historia-buses-escolares-2-30(Scroll down to read this in English).- Las clases están a la vuelta de la esquina y miles de chicos se transportarán en bus de su casa a la escuela. Tenga en cuenta estos consejos de StateFarm para ayudar a proteger a los niños cerca del autobús escolar:

·       Asegúrese de que el conductor del autobús pueda verlo y usted pueda ver al conductor del autobús.

·       Esté muy atento a los estudiantes mientras están subiendo y bajando del autobús, ¡los que se atrasan pueden correr inesperadamente!

·       La parte más peligrosa del viaje, para los niños, es subir y bajar del autobús.

El National Safety Council (Consejo de Seguridad Nacional) recomienda que los niños deben:

·       Esperar lejos de la calle y abordar sólo cuando el autobús está completamente detenido.

·       Al cruzar al frente del autobús, caminar al menos 10 pasos adelante del autobús para que el conductor pueda verlos.

·       Nunca deben caminar detrás del autobús. Los conductores pueden perder de vista a los niños en los puntos ciegos

Back to School Bus Safety
August 11, 2014 – As Florida students go back to school, State Farm is reminding parents, students and drivers to follow these important tips for bus safety:
  • Ensure your child’s safety when the bus is arriving. Make sure the bus driver can see you and you can see the bus driver.
  • When driving around a school bus, keep an especially close eye on students as they’re getting on and off the bus – stragglers might run out into the road unexpectedly.
  • The most dangerous part of the trip, for kids, is getting on and off the bus.
Also, the National Safety Council provides the following tips for students getting on and off a school bus:
  • When the bus arrives, stand at least three giant steps (6 feet) away from the curb.
  • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the sidewalk or along the side of the road until you are five giant steps (10 feet) ahead of the bus. Then you can cross the street.
  • Be sure the bus driver can see you and you can see the bus driver.
  • Never walk behind the bus.
  • If you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up first because the driver may not be able to see you.
  • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk at least ten feet ahead of the bus along the side of the road until you can turn around see the driver.
  • Make sure the bus driver can see you.
  • Wait for a signal from the driver before beginning to cross.
  • When the driver signals, walk across the road keeping an eye out for sudden traffic changes.
  • Do not cross the center line of the road until the driver has signaled that it is safe for you to begin walking.
  • Stay away from the wheels of the bus at all times.
