School Bus Safety: What Can Our Schools Do to Protect Our Children?
Dargan, Thomas J.; Silverstone, Adam H.
Journal for Leadership and Instruction, v13 n2 p39-41 Fall 2014
School districts and school bus contractors are entrusted with the most important of all road users--our nation's children. In the wake of recent newsworthy accidents and attention grabbing headlines regarding unfit bus drivers, claims premised upon school bus accidents have become increasingly tangential and, in turn, personal injury attorneys have become increasingly creative in the application of theories to support these claims. Two things occur when bus safety is taken lightly. First, children may get hurt. Second, personal injury attorneys seek to punish and expose potential defendants. The attorneys do so by using safety regulations as their sword.
