Important to keep in mind are the following:
- Drivers are responsible for the safety of everyone in their vehicle.
- Noise must be maintained to a level that permits the driver to give instructions, especially in emergencies, and to listen for communication from their dispatcher on the two-way radio.
- Students must remain seated while riding the school bus. Standing up, moving around and changing seats are all distractions for the driver and put the student in jeopardy in the case of a sudden stop.
