There’s a disturbing trend revealing itself in West Parry Sound.
Since March 30, three vehicles have crashed into school busses on area roadways.
Two of those were cars that rear-ended busses in town, the other had a driver run a stop sign and hit a bus near the entrance of the Seguin Trail off of Highway 400.
In two of the three cases, students were on board, and luckily, not injured.
School busses are very big and visible. One could draw the conclusion that driver inattention led to the collisions.
Children comprise one of the most vulnerable segments of our society.
Parents kiss their children goodbye for the day and watch the school bus drive away, trusting they’ll get to school and return home safely.
It is important that other drivers on the road do their part by taking extra caution and staying alert around school busses.
It’s been pure luck that all three collisions with school buses this spring have been minor ones.
Let’s hope we don’t ever read about a serious one with casualties.
Drivers, pay attention, our children are in those busses.
