"Avoid Harm, Obey the Stop Arm" During 43rd Annual National School Bus Safety Week

The American School Bus Council asks drivers of passenger vehicles to ensure the continued safety of school bus transportation with National School Bus Safety Week, October 19-23, and the 2009 theme, Avoid Harm, Obey the Stop Arm.

Educating parents about the proven safety of the school bus is another critical objective during the national observance as a recent survey from the Council found that 49 percent of parents incorrectly believe a car driven by an adult is the safest mode of transportation to get students to and from school.

So let's be sure to drive carefully and watch our for Loudoun County school kids during National School Bus Safety Week.
