To School Safely (posted 10-00)
- [ A-C ]
Students are at much greater risk traveling to and from school than at any
other time in their school day. During the 1998-99 school year, about 800
children between the ages of 5 through 18 were killed during normal school
transportation hours while traveling by passenger car, foot, bicycle, public
transportation and school bus.1 Many more were injured or suffered close
calls. These injuries and deaths affect everyone in the community.
