(HealthDay News) -- School children are taught to follow the
rules no matter where they are, and waiting for the bus is no
The U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration
offers this advice:
- Arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes early.
- Line up at least three giant steps (approximately six feet)
away from the curb.
- Do not board until the bus comes to a full stop, the door is
open and the driver says it's OK to board.
- If you must cross the street in front of a bus, do so at least
10 feet ahead of the bus. You must make sure the driver can see you
and you can see the driver.
- Take care when boarding and exiting the bus, using handrails
and making sure clothing or backpacks don't get caught.
- If you need to retrieve something dropped near the bus, tell
the driver first and wait for an answer.
