When you are driving next to or near a school bus, keep your distance as they have larger blind spots and less visibility than smaller vehicles. In addition, be mindful of your bus height and weight when gaining speed or making turns. Always scan your surroundings for other vehicles to prevent yourself and others from being involved in an accident.
