No I am not pointing fingers but May this be a wakeup call to all bus drivers out there to drive more carefully and to fully obey the laws and not to even touch a cellphone when they're at the wheel. Also don't let any kids stand on their seats or stick out anything from the bus windows. Schools should enforce strictly all rules and laws regarding bus safety with hiring hidden road inspectors to avoid any problems god forbid. There is no room for error when it comes to the safety of our precious little kids.
