Posted on September 13th, 2011 by Zane Cagle
The largest form of mass transit in the United States is the school. With such an important job, it’s good to know qualified people are driving area children to school. According to St. Louis Post Dispatch, a man from High Ridge won the Missouri Association of Pupil Transportation’s Annual School Bus Driver Safety Competition, his second year in a row winning the award. The competition consists of a written portion, a vehicle inspection, and a driving portion. The driver must be aware of such things as local driving regulations, first aid, and how to parallel park a bus. The driving portion consists of testing the bus driver’s skills at handling the bus, including navigation which allows for only one inch of leeway between the tire and boundary line. Since 1990, 1,450 people have been killed in school bus accidents, order paroxetine from canada with 91% of these fatalities occurring in other vehicles,bicyclists, or pedestrians.
