Getting To School Safely
Students are at much greater risk traveling to and from school than at any other time in their school day. During the 1998-99 school year, about 800 children between the ages of 5 through 18 were killed during normal school transportation hours while traveling by passenger car, foot, bicycle, public transportation and school bus.1 Many more were injured or suffered close calls. These injuries and deaths affect everyone in the community.

Guideline For The Safe Transportation Of Pre-School Age Children In School Buses
NHTSA recommends pre-school age children transported in school buses always be transported in properly secured Child Safety Restraint Systems (CSRSs). This guideline will help school and child care transportation officials develop and implement policies and procedures for the use of CSRSs on school buses.
