School Bus Accidents in Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office is reminding drivers to slow down and to pay attention in and around school zones. Drivers on both sides of the road are also required to stop when a school bus is stopped and the bus’s red flashers are on. Drivers need to watch for children walking or riding a bike in the street and for children gathering near bus stops. Drivers should also be on the lookout while backing out of a driveway or garage, as children may be walking or biking to school. If a child is hit by a car, the injuries can be severe and life altering.
