STOP DILUTING SCHOOL BUS LIGHTS

NEW SCHOOL BUS LIGHTS ARE CONFUSED WITH
NEW WARNING LIGHTS USED ON OTHER VEHICLES

Suddenly, many accidents are occurring where school children are hit while crossing the street while "protected" by the stop arms on school buses.

The following facts are common to these accidents:

  1. It was dark (in many cases, extended Daylight-Saving Time was still in effect).
  2. The other driver did not recognize the vehicle as being a school bus.
  3. The other driver was focused on the vehicle instead of on the children.
  4. The children started to cross as soon as the STOP arm came out, instead of waiting for traffic to stop.
  5. In some cases, the other driver did not see a school bus at all.
