Education Segment: Bus Safety

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) - For this week's education segment, Newschannel 7's Jessica Foster sat down with Safety and Training Officer Gary Montoya with Bay District Schools to discuss school bus safety.

Everything about a school bus is specifically designed for safety: flashing lights, giant mirrors, color, shape and even the high seat backs. However, despite the safety regulations, designs, and laws there are thousands of school bus-related injuries every year. In 2017, school bus-related crashes killed 95 people according to the National Security Council.

For advice for parents, students and drivers, watch Jessica's full interview.
