Today's Bus Safety Week post refers to giving way to buses. We understand you may be in a hurry, but we won't hold you up too long. It can be the difference between a safe trip for everyone, and someone getting hurt.
This week is #bussafetyweek and Ogden's Coaches are proud to be on board.
Today's bus safety message; buses can't stop quickly. Please make sure you have a look for buses before stepping out on a pedestrian crossing, as buses require more room to come to a stop, and heavy breaking can also cause injury to passengers. For information about bus safety check out http://www.bebusaware.com.au/.
