Whether you are a regular bus rider or not, you can be affected by a bus crash. Buses are large vehicles, weighing tens of thousands of pounds. When they are involved in a crash, they can potentially cause major injuries for passengers, as well as for people inside other vehicles affected. Of particular concern are the thousands of school buses we rely on to keep our children safe.
We know that many bus crashes are caused by bus driver errors as well as vehicle failure.
Bus drivers should never operate unless they are properly licensed and endorsed. Drivers have different requirements depending on what kind of bus they operate. Bus drivers who operate long-distance buses must also adhere to laws regarding the number of hours they can drive at a time. These laws are in place to prevent driver fatigue.
Under no circumstances should any driver operate while impaired by drugs or alcohol. They should also never be distracted by their phones or other devices.
Bus companies and operating agencies must regularly inspect and maintain each vehicle to ensure that all systems are fully functional and that the bus is roadworthy. If any part of the vehicle experiences failure at high speeds, the results can be detrimental.
Injuries from bus crashes can be severe. It is not uncommon for us to see the following as a result of these crashes:
