If You met Me on the road Would You See Me?

This is what I drive every morning and every afternoon.




It's amazing how many people do not see the school bus! I have a flashing lights on the top, a stop sign that comes out with flashing lights, it's big, it's yellow - but apparently invisible. Many times a week I have to slam on the brakes because I've been cut off at an intersection by someone who is short sighted (well - I'm assuming they are).


The other day I had a "special needs" student on the bus - I'm surprised she didn't hit the floor when I braked. Someone didn't even stop at their stop sign or look in my direction and just came around the corner in front of me. I sat on the horn, but the bus has a really wimpy horn. I need an Air Horn!! Just like the trains have!


So while you are out driving this week - PLEASE look for the big yellow school buses!

  1. Oh I hear you. I don't drive a big yellow bus but it just boggles my mind at how muh people lack common sense and courtesy while driving (and in general).

  2. I do not like crazie drivers, especially around children.

    I think it's cool that you drive a bus.

  3. I have a friend that drove a school bus in Arizona and she told me all about what you do daily to make the drive safe for our children!

    So from me Thank you for all that you do Audrey!

    I will pray that more people look out for and see the yellow bus!

    Honk honk!

  5. My mom drives the bus!

    And I hate it when people don't watch. I had a snowplow pull out in front of me on the highway the other day, almost causing a pile up. I could hear my brakes sqealing!

  7. Wow, that's just unreal, I just can't figure out how people don't see a giant YELLOW bus!! And frankly, they are the losing bet against a big vehicle like yours!

  8. I am always so shocked when people just continue down the road and a bus is sitting there with flashers on getting ready to unload schoolchildren. It's maddening!
