According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, school busses are the safest way to transport children across the country to school.  The agency estimates that there are 450,000 school busses around the country helping children get to and from school each day.

Although school bus procedures and designs are created to help promote safety, there's still a lot of misunderstanding about the severity of school bus stop violations. Although some individuals believe these are minor offenses, they can be taken very seriously as criminal charges in Illinois.

The majority of children killed in between school and home are not injured or killed inside the bus. The area around the bus where children board and exit is known as the death zone because of the high risk faced by children.
