Student misbehavior creating dangerous situation on busses

POSTED: 01/20/12 1:00 PM

St. Maarten – The School Bus Inspection Section has called on parents to instruct their children to behave while riding in school busses after several drivers filed complaints. The section head is particularly concerned that someone will get hurt if the students continue misbehaving.
“A school bus driver must focus on driving and is not able to address students who are misbehaving. Students who behave in a disruptive manner on the school bus are creating a dangerous situation which puts the other children and motorists in danger thereby creating a safety hazard. The bus driver must focus his or her attention on the road and stay on schedule. Students need to act responsibly and parents need to address this matter especially those who use the school bus,” a release stated.

The release further states, “Students must behave in a responsible manner at the bus pick-up point; they must follow instructions of the driver; students must remain seated and quiet. The school bus driver is responsible for the safe operation of the school bus and he/she requires the support of parents. Any behavior which could endanger safety on the school bus is unacceptable.”
“Riding on the school bus is a privilege, a service provided by government at no cost. School busses are privately owned vehicles and parents will be held responsible for their child/children’s actions,” the release also stated.
Anybody who sees any unusual behavior on or with a school bus is encouraged to report this to the Inspection Section at 542-4511 or 542-4509 or call the police if it is an immediate danger.
