    • Avoid the Danger Zone, because it’s difficult for the driver to see you in this area
    • Take 10 giant steps beyond the front bumper of the bus before you turn to cross the street. This lets the driver maintain eye contact with you while you cross. 
    • Look both ways before crossing a street, and wait for driver’s signal
    • NEVER cross the street behind the bus! 
    • Keep away from the bus if you drop or forget something.
