The Minnesota Department of Transportation is offering tips on promoting safety while in the vicinity of a school bus. They urge children riding a bus to always look both ways when crossing the street and to wait for the go-ahead from the driver. Enough distance should be given so that the driver can see the kid as well. Other drivers should give themselves a 20 foot cushion when coming upon a stopped bus with flashing lights, and a new route might be considered for those who can manage it.
