School Bus Accidents
One of the greatest aspects of our democracy is the public school system. Public schools are one of the most expansive social programs that the United States of America has ever implemented. Many know programs like the school lunch program feeds hungry kids and helps low-income families to get by in tough times. In that same vein, many students, privileged and underprivileged alike, rely on the public schools' intricate system of bus routes to get to and from school each day. In major cities like San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston, the bus system is indispensable for parents running on a tight schedule and with a long morning commute.
Every day parents put their children on school busses with faith that their children will arrive and return safely. Unfortunately, according to the National Highway Transportation Agency, approximately 17,000 children are hurt in school bus related accidents every year, and many of those children will come from dense urban areas such as San Antonio. School buses while more efficient for mass transportation often lack safety precautions that come standard in most trucks and automobiles. This means that bus accidents can be particularly dangerous when they occur.
