North Carolina approves new policy for school bus safety
from Sampson Independent
Under a new safety policy, school bus riders throughout Sampson County will have to pay more attention to their driver before crossing the street. The North Carolina State Board of Education changed a busing policy which will require bus drivers to use a standard hand signal to tell a student when it's safe to cross the street. According to a news release from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, five students in the state were injured by motorist passing stopped school buses during the 2014-2015 school year. It's one of the reasons for the change.
