Pediatricians Revise School Transportation Safety Policy

The American Academy of Pediatrics Committees on School Health and Injury and Poison Prevention has revised its 1985 statement entitled "School Bus Safety." In a recent issue of the AAP's professional journal Pediatrics (May, 1996), the Academy published an updated article titled School Transportation Safety which provides relevant federal regulations, and outlines recommendations for addressing school bus safety. The AAP emphasized the importance of Academies' role in sharing recommendations at both the community, state and national levels.
