Recent events leave parents questioning the safety of their children when getting off and on school buses. According to Jeff Rossen, a reporter for The Today Show, on April 24, a speeding SUV nearly hit several elementary school students as they were about to board a school bus in Graham, Washington. According to the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Information Services, vehicles pass stopped school buses more than 70,000 times a day, even though passing one with its lights flashing is illegal in all 50 states. The Department of Transportation says that 23 million children ride a school bus every day.
