As incredible as it may sound, there are a large number of fatal accidents that continue to occur in this country involving students when getting on and off the school bus.

According to figures released by the Kansas Department of Transportation and other sources, fatalities, and injuries in the loading and unloading area, aptly called the “danger zone” have caused 13 fatal accidents involving kindergarten to grade 12 school children. Of the 13 fatalities, seven occurred behind the bus, and six were killed by a passing motorist.

Pedestrian fatalities in the “danger zone” are three times higher than those of school bus occupants. This makes time to get on and off the school bus, one of the most dangerous parts of the bus ride.

The reason why the “danger zone” is potentially so dangerous is because it is the area on all sides of the bus where children are not seen by the driver (ten feet in front of the bus where the driver may be sitting too high or ten feet on each side of the bus where a child may be in the driver’s blind spot and in the area behind the school bus).


Given the increase in such fatalities, several mandatory changes to the product and design of school buses have been implemented. For example, the federal rule requires that all new buses be equipped with an 8 amp lamp warning system and a stop signal arm.

While the number of these accidents in the “danger zone” has decreased considerably over the years, the school transport section of the National Safety Council recommends that training on various aspects of the ascent and descent of getting on and off the bus pupils and students.

Here are some simple guidelines you could teach your child as they prepare to get on and off their school bus:

  • Avoid any rowdy behavior while waiting for the bus. Stay calm and don’t stray on to the streets.
  • Stay away from the street when approaching the bus.
  • After entering the bus, find a seat and sit down.
  • Keep your head, neck, and arms inside the bus.
  • When school arrives, wait for the bus to stop completely before getting up from the seat.
  • Keep the bus aisle clear of traffic.
  • Walk at least 10 feet in front of the bus along the road, if you have to cross the road in front of the bus.
  • Wait for the driver to give you the signal before you start to cross the road.
  • When crossing the road, keep an eye out for oncoming traffic.
  • Always stay away from the rear wheels of the bus.
