Holiday travel can result in more accidents than usual. Many people make plans to see friends and family, or journey to a new exciting destination during the winter months. Though taking a bus can be a convenient way for large groups of people to travel, authorities warn that bus accidents are on the rise across Pennsylvania.
The holiday season is quickly approaching, and the coming weeks are a popular time for people to travel in Pennsylvania and across the country. The roads become more crowded than usual when daily traffic is compounded by people going to see family, taking a shopping trip or delivering packages. Though bus accidents are always a concern, more traffic means more risk of a crash.
A Pennsylvania road became the scene of yet another bus crash on Oct.19, 2018. Bus accidents have plagued the state's roads over the last few months, and the number of injuries continues to rise. Bus accidents can be particularly devastating because so many people are riding in one vehicle, placing their lives in the hands of the bus operator and other drivers on the road.
Pennsylvania residents may be among the growing number of Americans that have taken a charter bus in recent years. Buses are an efficient way for a large group of people to travel together, and a bus ride to a destination can be a fun way to relax and chat with friends on a road trip. Unfortunately, reports of deadly bus accidents continue to make headlines across the country.
School districts across Pennsylvania take student safety very seriously. In recent years, many measures have been put in place to ensure that children have the best possible learning experience. Though many parents may feel as if their children are relatively safe at school, they may not consider the danger their children are in while traveling to and from school. Already this year, several bus accidents have caused injury and fright to students across the state, and the most recent has many families concerned.
Pennsylvania residents can likely recall at least one time they have ridden a bus. Many children rely on buses to get them to and from school each day. Even for adults, a bus can be a handy way to travel in a large group or save commuters from having to worry about the expense of driving their personal vehicle. Though buses are considered to be a relatively safe method of transportation, bus accidents can result in high numbers of serious injuries.
A new school year is beginning across the state of Pennsylvania, and students aren't the only ones who may have first-day jitters. Waiting for the school bus can be an anxious moment for parents as well. Though it is time to turn a new leaf and begin a new semester, parents may still have lingering fears about the potential for serious bus accidents.
Many Pennsylvania residents use buses to get around. They are an efficient way to transport large groups, whether for commuting to work or traveling the countryside. Unfortunately, bus accidents can result in multiple injuries.
Many Pennsylvania residents rely on mass transportation to get from place to place. Part of the reason for this is that there are a multitude of people living in urban areas who have little use or space for a personal vehicle. Others may not have a driver's license and rely on trains, buses and other methods of public travel. Though convenient, riders are often at serious risk because bus accidents can be particularly devastating.
