School buses should be equipped with po­lice-style lights

The Beacon Herald - - OPINION - Neil Bed­nar­ick, Wind­sor, Ont.

Re­gard­ing the tragic deaths of the three chil­dren in In­di­ana, who were killed last month by a pickup truck as they crossed the road to board a bus — all school buses should be equipped with the same light­ing as po­lice, fire and am­bu­lance ve­hi­cles. Lights should be on the front, top, sides and rear of buses so they can be seen a mile away. It’s painfully ob­vi­ous that there is not enough light­ing on the busses.

It’s also ob­vi­ous peo­ple are not pay­ing at­ten­tion to what they are do­ing. Just re­cently the car in front of me did not stop. I al­ways stop at least 10 me­tres away from the bus, as should every­one.
