After the bus incidents we've had recently in our areas, I would like to get a petition out to suggest that our bus drivers have an assistant who rides with them. Im under no circumstances saying our bus drivers where at fault for the accidents, they are not and would avoid accidents at all cost. I have rode the school busses and know what goes on. The kids are rowdy and very distracting. Our Bus drivers should never have to take thier eyes off the road when transporting our kids. But sometimes when kids are fighting, screaming or causing chaos, the driver has to make a decision to assess the situation taking thier eyes off the road or drive the bus and ignore whats going on behind them. It isnt fair to our bus drivers to have to make these decisions. I would like to see a drivers assistant on every bus to monitor the kids of all ages, packed on these busses. Some of our drivers are making 2 routes a morning trying to get kids to school. They are needing bus drivers and something has to be done. Our drivers deal with these kids everyday. Just because an accident doesn't happen everyday, doesn't mean these kids are doing the right thing. It means today the bus driver got through the day without incident. Get our drivers bus monitors so they can safely transport our children and themselves.
