I spoke with the bus driver this morning. He radiod State Patrol right away and they got the guy. He was an elderly man who claimed he thought the big yellow bus with flashing lights was a black colored delivery truck...in my opinion he should not be on the road if his vision is that bad. Anyways he got a $500 ticket. I'm so thankful they got this guy. It makes me so mad! We also talked about how we will adress my daughter getting off the bus from now on. I feel so much better but still shaken.
Okay I was waiting at the bus stop for my 5 year old to return from school. We live on a 2 lane rual road and she has to cross this road after school. We have a long driveway so I wait at the end of it in the car with my 2 younger children.The bus stopped and put the stop sign paddle out and lights on and as my daughter was already off the bus and about to cross the road this car just speeds past and continues on it's way. The bus driver was laying on the horn and motioning at the vehicle to stop. I am very shaken about the whole thing. I didn't get a good ID of the car just that it is a car and maybe maroon in color. Anyways I want some advice on what I should do. Should I do anything? Should I speak with the bus driver? Should I call the school? I've already talked with my daughter about it I told her from now on when she gets off the bus she needs to wait there and watch for me to motion her to cross the road. What would you do?
