Avoiding Bus Accidents

Bus Accidents

With so many buses on the roadways today, plenty of bus accidents occur every day. While some of these bus accidents are unavoidable, other bus accidents are avoidable through safe driving and efficient bus maintenance. Some common causes for bus accidents include:

  1. Distracted Driving- There are plenty of distractions for drivers on the road today. While some distractions that occur on the road are inevitable, other distractions can be avoided. These distractions include food, music, and electronic devices such as cellphones.
  2. Speeding- Everyone seems to be in a hurry these days. This means that it is easy for drivers to increase their speed to keep up with the vehicles around them.
  3. Poor Maintenance- Accidents often occur when buses break down due to poor maintenance. Should an engine or other system fail in your vehicle, a break down will occur, leaving you vulnerable to the traffic that surrounds you.
