Transportation officials talk school bus safety
from Murray Ledger & Times
With warmer weather finally on its way this spring, Kentucky school officials know all too well that area roads are likely to be more crowded than any other time of the year, which poses a bigger threat for buses. Both Murray Independent and Calloway County school districts are likely to be on high alert, as statistics show the majority of school bus-related accidents are caused by factors outside the bus, rather than driver error. That lack of driver error is to be expected, said Calloway Director of Transportation Tommy Futrell, as his staff at the bus garage employs three full-time driver trainers. This adds to the almost 700 trainers statewide who work to educate more than 11,000 school bus drivers.
