Bus drivers should all have their commercial driver’s license. Many drivers must also obtain certain endorsements as well, depending on how many passengers they will be driving. A bus driver should have one goal in mind – their passengers’ safety.
If a bus driver decides that they can look at their phones while driving, maybe to send a text or watch a video clip, they are putting many lives in danger. Distracted driving is completely unacceptable for drivers who hold so many lives in their hands.
Impaired driving has and always will be a cause of concern for anyone on the roadway. If a bus driver is operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they have the potential to cause devastation.
Bus companies should regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles to ensure that no part of the bus experiences a failure when going down the roadway. If they fail to keep their buses maintained, companies should be held accountable for any injuries in an accident.
A bus accident endangers the passengers as well as other vehicles and pedestrians around the accident. Often, bus accidents become mass casualty incidents.
