School Zones and School Bus Stops
It seems that many drivers these days are in an incredible hurry to get to wherever they are going. This sometimes causes a motorist to ignore the pertinent traffic laws at the expense of public safety. While this is dangerous for all people on or near the roadways, it is especially troubling when it occurs in school zones or in the vicinity of stopped school buses.
If your child has been struck by a negligent or reckless driver in a school zone, or while exiting or entering a school bus, then you should consider the possibility of filing a civil claim. It is important that you have the resources necessary to contend with your child’s needs. Contact the Stevens Point bus accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
Behaviors that Cause Accidents
The importance of driving with caution near schools and buses is well known, yet the following behaviors persist:
- Violating school zone speed limits
- Failure to stop at crosswalks, with or without crossing guards present
- Failure to yield to children in the street
- Failure to stop when school buses have stopped to take on or offload passengers
All pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to injury when they are hit by motor vehicles. But given their smaller stature and lesser weight, children are at an exponentially greater risk of being seriously hurt. Therefore it is essential that motorists act responsibly in areas where children are present.
We understand that your child is precious, and we are committed to helping you to hold a negligent motorist accountable for the harm that he or she has done. Contact the Stevens Point car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
