School Bus Safety Week in Florida

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This week is school bus safety week in Florida.

The state has launched a new website to help educate parents, kids and drivers about school bus safety laws.  And the theme for the week-'Stop on Red, Kids Ahead'-reminds drivers they must stop when a school bus flashes its red lights and extends its stop arms.

The riskiest part of the school bus ride to school is getting on and off the bus, according to Duval County Schools.

"This week is an excellent time to teach and reiterate to students and parents simple measures they can take while going to and from the bus stop, getting on and off the bus, and riding the bus," said Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals.  "It also gives us a chance to thank and honor the professionals who devote themselves to transporting our most precious cargo."
