Recent studies, based on data from the US Consumer Products Safety Administration, shows that school bus injuries are nearly twice as frequent as previously reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Approximately 17,000 hospital visits per year are due to the result of a school bus accident.
School buses are today operating on a 40 year-old design which has not been updated to include modern safety features such as seat belts, air bags, anti-lock brakes, or many other saftey devices found in most modern vehicles.
The Schmidt-Salita Law Team asks this question: Isn’t the safety of our children who ride school buses as important, or more important than the riders of cars, vans and SUVs?
