Wayne County Public Schools Director of Transportation Robert Lee said the main thing children can do is to be alert and make sure to pay close attention to their environment. "The most important thing is if they have to cross that road, check traffic before you go," Lee said. "You know, we actually have this new hand signal thing where the bus driver actually checks traffic and gives the child a thumbs up if it's safe." Lee said walking across the road without checking traffic and not paying attention could be deadly — a car can run a stop sign and run a child over, but it can be prevented by children checking traffic before they board the bus. Lee also said that children should stand in a safe spot while they wait on the school bus, away from the curb and away from the road. And at the end of the day, when a child gets ready to get off the bus, they should stay seated until it is time to walk off the vehicle, Lee said. "A lot of kids on the bus, when it gets ready to stop they'll antici- pate getting home and they'll stand up, but they shouldn't do that," Lee said. Lee also said children should stay away from the bumpers of the bus, and if they drop some- thing they should tell the driver before picking it up. Parents, too, should follow a few rules. If a child has an issue with another child, Lee said a parent should not — under any circum- stances — go on the bus and try to confront the other child. "What they should do is go to the school and talk to the admin- istrators, assistant principal and principal and vent their com- plaint, and whatever they felt was going wrong and have them inves- tigate it," Lee said. Lee said parents are not allowed on school buses in the first place. Confronting someone else's child, Lee said, can create hostili- ty with the other parent. Tips given for school bus safety
