Even before school starts, parents should make sure their* children are ready to accept their part in making buses safe, the National Safety Council says. Pupils should leave their homes early enough to reach the bus stop in time for the bus, but without undue haste. At the same time, they should not be so early that they have a considerable wait. When it is necessary for the children to walk along a road, rather than a sidewalk, to reach the bus stop, they should walk on the left side — facing traffic. They should keep as far to the left of the shoulder as possible. If there is no shoulder, or if it is narrow or wet and slippery, they should not walk more than two abreast. Single file is better, and a group should never spread out over" a major part of the roadway. 'No Crowding, Pushing The pupils should board the bus without delay, but without crowding or pushing. They should take their seats promptly, and remain in them until the bus has reached its destination and has completely stopped. Children should be taught how to cross highways at the proper places and with full consideration of traffic. Nearly all states have laws requiring motorists to stop for school buses taking on or discharging passengers tn rural areas. But not all motorists observe these laws. In most communities, pupils are directed to step in front of the bus after leaving it and to wait until the driver signals that it is safe to walk — not run — across the highway. The children should not rely entirely on the driver's signal, but should observe the traffic themselves. It should be emphasized that this procedure is used only with school buses. Bus Patrols Many scTiools organize school bus patrols — usually two students per bus whose job is to help the driver and the passengers. Passengers should follow their directions. Children should be taught not to put their heads or arms out the windows. They should not throw things about inside the bus or out of windows or doors. They should understand the use of emergency doors, but should not tampef with them during normal travel.
