Accident Injures Boy In Lehigh Acres Calling Into Question School Bus Stop Safety
Thankfully the student was not seriously injured however, this eye-opening incident should serve as a stark reminder of the importance of establishing safe zones for children to wait for school buses. Areas, where children gather to catch the bus, should be visible, well-lit, and away from the main road. However, in many southwest Florida neighborhoods, conditions are less than ideal, exposing children to potential dangers such as reckless drivers, poor visibility, or lack of safe sidewalks.
In the Lee County incident, the child was standing in a designated area for the school bus pick-up which, unfortunately, was too close to an active roadway. When vehicles are maneuvering in the vicinity of school bus stops, they must be exceptionally cautious, particularly during early morning hours when visibility might be compromised, and children might not be easily noticed.
