WALL, N.J. — Student Transportation of America (STA) has partnered with School Bus Safety Co. (SBSC) to distribute videos that raise awareness of passenger safety on and around the school bus free of charge.
STA and its family of companies are making available a series of child safety videos to school districts, parents, students, and the general public. Included in the video series is the SBSC Danger Zones program that addresses all aspects of reducing risk in the school bus “danger zone” areas, with a significant focus on correct street crossing procedures.
“Danger zones are where a child has the greatest risk of getting hurt or killed because those are the areas around the bus where drivers have limited visibility,” said Shelly Hall, STA’s vice president of safety. “The Danger Zones videos can help prevent danger zone accidents that are unfortunately far too common. It would be prudent for students, parents, and school officials to watch these videos and become better educated on how to behave on and around the school bus.”
In addition to the Danger Zones videos, which feature topics such as instructions to students, safe pick up and drop off procedures, crossing the street, and why children enter danger zones, another series of children’s videos is also being offered by STA for the pre-K through 12th grade audience. These videos offer safety tips to help students realize the importance of taking school bus safety seriously and view best practices for daily riders.
“Naturally, we place the utmost importance on keeping children safe on and around school buses,” Hall added. “This series of safety-themed videos for children from pre-K through 12th grade is a great offering for children, and really most everyone, to learn about safety practices and how to optimize safety on and around the school bus.”
