Bus Drivers Must Operate With A Higher Set Of Standards Than Regular Drivers
- High-speed drivers
- Bus driver error
- Road conditions
- Bus equipment failures
- Blind spots
- Errors of other drivers on the road
To avoid accidents, bus drivers have a duty to:
- Not allow passenger overcrowding
- Not start or stop suddenly
- Not drive erratically
- Obey all traffic laws
- Properly use indication signals such as blinkers and crossing signs
Plus, did you know that if an accident occurs on a highway, the bus driver must ensure passenger safety by staying inside of the vehicle and not exiting onto the freeway?
With advancements in technology, most buses are now equipped with cameras, which can be very useful as evidence in determining fault.
