“The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round…” is a popular children’s song from the 1940s. Children across America and beyond are taught to sing this catchy song to keep themselves amused. If you recall this little song you know it has a catchy rhythm with easy to remember lyrics. The song was created for children to sing while on bus trips. As a parent, you want to entertain your child and keep them happy and safe in any transportation. However, accidents happen. When bus accidents happen they can injure a whole group of people. If you or someone you love is suffering from injuries due to a bus accident then our North Miami Bus Accident Attorneys at Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates are here to help you.
Every day hundreds of buses drive through the streets of North Miami. From school buses to public transit buses to tour buses, the average size of a bus is around 45 ft long with a weight of 30,000-40,000 pounds. The weight can increase if it is a fully loaded bus. Bus drivers must take great care when driving buses because occupants rarely use seat belts. Bus drivers, like truck drivers, must take special classes before being approved to drive. However, bus drivers are like everyday people who make mistakes and can cause accidents like any other driver. They can make mistakes like driving too fast, driving while distracted, or worse, driving under the influence. Bus accidents are scarier because more people can get hurt.
People who take the bus as public transportation sometimes have no other choice. Children who take the school bus may not have any other choice to get to school. People who take tours may choose a bus because it is more affordable. Whatever reason you choose to get on a bus, you trust that the driver is competent and the vehicle is secure.
