It has been a cold, Icy and difficult winter. We are looking forward to warmer days here at the transportation department. Pre-tripping a bus in wet and cold weather is no fun! Driving in the ice and snow makes for long and stressful days.
The warmer months will bring a lot of fun activity trips. Riley's Farm is one of our favorites. Trip season is the best season of all. Riding the bus is not a chore to get to school but a ride to adventure, learning and fun.
Activity trip bus riders still have to follow the rules of ridership. The number one rule for the students is to stay in their seat and stay belted in. The number two, is horse playing on the bus, this is a big distraction to the driver and unsafe when the bus is in motion. Several of the trips will go off the mountain and the driver has to concentrate on the real safety issue, keeping their eyes on the road, not on the students messing around.
School Bus Safety rules are required to be posted in every bus, this is something CHP wants drivers to check daily in the pre-trip vehicle inspection. The safety rules are posted where passengers can see them, usually above the driver's seat.
