School Bus Danger Zone

Each student must be aware of the area surrounding the school bus called the Danger Zone.  The Danger Zone is the area extending ten feet in all directions from the school bus in which serious student injuries and deaths occur.  When the student boards and leaves the school bus they must follow the routes or arrows shown in white on the Danger Zone illustration.  This places them within view of the school bus driver at all times.
