Get Your Kids And Show Them Why You Never Cross The Road Behind A Bus

Published

Road safety isn’t as widely taught in schools as it should be. After all, the average teacher has an awful lot to cram into a young mind before they leave and some things are always going to slip through the cracks.

That’s why you should grab your kids and let them read this instructive article on why you never, ever cross a road behind a bus.

Crossing The Road And Buses

Buses are a standard feature of school life and indeed, adult life. However, crossing the road around a bus isn’t always straightforward.

That’s because a bus covers a much bigger area than a car and it’s much harder to see what’s going on on the road when you are behind a bus. It’s worth waiting and letting the bus pass before crossing the road.

Absolute Proof

You don’t have to take our word for this. Look at this picture here of two children crossing the road behind a bus. What they can’t see is the truck coming from the other direction.

Now, take a closer look and ask yourself, “when that first child clears the bus, will they be safe?”

No, They Won’t

The next frame shows just how dangerous crossing a road behind a bus is. The second child is far enough back that they can step out of danger. The first, however, is committed and that truck is bearing down.

Fortunately for this child, the truck driver was very aware of his own position on the road. He’d seen the bus and was slowing down when the child stepped out in front of him. As you will see from the video below, he came to a stop, but with only inches to spare.

So please, watch the video with your kids. It might just save their lives.
