Getting to and from a bus stop may be more dangerous than the actual ride to school. Here's why

from CNN

Parents often worry about their kids riding the school bus. But waiting for the bus or getting off after school can pose a far greater danger. The risk was highlighted this week, as at least five children lost their lives when they were hit by drivers near school bus stops, authorities said. At least seven other children were hurt in bus stop incidents. Overall, wrecks involving school transportation, including buses, make up a tiny fraction of deadly vehicle incidents — less than 1 percent of nearly 325,000 fatal crashes in the US from 2006 to 2015, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data show. But more than one-third of school-age children who died in those school-transportation-related wrecks — 102 children — were on foot when they were killed, including some hit by school buses, the data show. Most of the others were riding in vehicles that were not school buses. more
