Driving Near School Buses in Company Vehicles

School Buses

When approaching a school bus: Slow down; If the amber lights are flashing, the bus is about to stop; If the red lights are flashing, the bus is stopped; In many states it is against the law to pass a school bus with flashing red lights and/or an extended stop arm.

Do not upset school bus drivers. Many are not paid very well and certainly don't deserve the aggravation. There are many type of transportation companies and agencies which drive buses and all have slightly different policies, so expect just about anything, they are human and can make mistakes too. Here are some of the School Bus Companies and Agencies out there:

Private schools; Public school districts; Ryder leasing; Russell bus lines; Durham Transportation; Laidlaw; Etc.

Make sure you maintain good public relations with these drivers. Also, realize that if you do something stupid near a school bus; it will be noticed by others. They will think you are unsafe, which is a bad image. Don't think for a second no one will notice. After all logo on your company vehicle sticks out. Save yourself a free ticket to traffic school and negative comments from teachers, bus drivers, parents and other motorists.

Proper etiquette when driving the company vehicles is important no matter who is driving, you should make a point of discussing this with all your drivers. Sometimes delivery drivers get in a bit of a hurry or anxious about completing all the deliveries on time. Let them know that you do not want them to dilly dalley, but you certainly expect them to courteous, safe and smart about the way they drive, children's safety depends on it as well as the longevity of your business in that community.
