Student Transportation of America Partners with School Bus Safety Leader Promoting Child Safety On and Around the Bus

WALL,
N.J. (January 21, 2019)
– As a reflection of its continued dedication and
commitment to safety awareness and education, Student Transportation of America
(STA)
, an industry leader in school bus transportation, safety and fleet
services, has partnered with School Bus Safety Company, Inc. (SBSC), North
America’s premier school bus safety and training company, to bring further
attention to passenger safety on and around the school bus. STA and its family
of companies are making available a series of complimentary child safety videos
to school districts, parents, students and the general public. Included in the video series is the SBSC
Danger Zones program that addresses
all aspects of reducing risk in the school bus “danger zone” areas, with a significant
focus on correct street crossing procedures. 

 

“Danger
zones are where a child has the greatest risk of getting hurt or killed because
those are the areas around the bus where drivers have limited visibility,”
stated Shelly Hall, STA’s Vice President of Safety. “The Danger Zones videos can help prevent danger zone accidents that are
unfortunately far too common. It would be prudent for students, parents and
school officials to watch these videos and become better educated on how to
behave on and around the school bus.”

 

In
addition to the Danger Zones videos,
which feature topics such as Instructions
to Students, Safe Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures, Crossing the Street,
and
Why Children Enter Danger Zones,
another series of children’s videos is also being offered by STA for the
Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade audience. These videos offer
invaluable safety tips
to help students realize the importance of taking school
bus safety seriously and view best practices for daily riders that are
potentially life-saving lessons.

 

“Naturally,
we place the utmost importance on keeping children safe on and around school
buses,” added Hall. “This series of safety-themed videos for children from
Pre-K through 12th grade is a great offering for children, and really most everyone,
to learn about safety practices and how to optimize safety on and around the
school bus.”
