Texting, Handheld Cell Phone Use Banned for Bus Drivers
The U.S. Department of Transportation has banned bus drivers from texting or using handheld cell phones behind the wheel. The federal ban has been placed on all commercial motor vehicle drivers, which means that the law applies to almost every bus operator in the USA as of January 2010.
Did You Know?
People are at greatest risk of injury when walking or standing in the loading and unloading area of the bus. This is known as the "danger zone" and it extends 10 feet around the entire bus. Children are most at risk because their small size makes it difficult for bus drivers and other motorists to spot them. Learn more about bus safety for the back-to-school months.
