Safety issues raised red flags

-A A +A
By The Staff

I could have spoken up about how odd it was to be putting so many people at risk, but I didn’t. I’ll take some blame for that. I’m sorry. Why didn’t I speak up when I noticed that we wanted our youth who ride buses to cross in front of the school bus, but we wanted them to cross behind Atomic City Transit buses? Why didn’t I speak up when I noticed that vehicle drivers must stop for school buses but can whiz past Atomic City Transit (ACT) buses? Why didn’t I speak up when I noticed that the previous system’s Los Alamos bus drivers were ticketed for stopping in places not signed as bus stops, but ACT bus drivers stopped wherever they needed to in order to drop my sorry self off?

I saw three “error-likely” situations and I didn’t say a word. I messed up. But I’ll speak up now.

First, we are asking our youth to remember two different rules for two different bus systems — cross  in front of the school bus but cross behind the ACT bus. This is risky.

Second, we are asking our car drivers to remember two different rules for two different bus systems – stop or don’t bother to stop. This is risky.
