During this important province-wide awareness raising campaign, most Federation member school bus Carriers organize numerous activities on school bus safety in collaboration with their school boards and local police forces. Don’t hesitate to call upon the carriers who serve your school. They are available to help you do classroom activities, carry out simulations around a school bus and more.
The SAAQ, in collaboration with its partners, including the Bus Carriers Federation, has published a folder titled School Bus Transportation, a Shared Responsibility which helps citizens, bus drivers, parents and children understand the role that each must play to ensure the safety of students when they are on their way to school or coming home. The PDF version of the folder is available for download on the SAAQ’s Web site at www.saaq.gouv.qc.ca.
The CAA-Quebec Foundation created a school safety patrols program to promote road safety awareness and education in school zones. CAA-Quebec school safety patrols date back to 1929, and nowadays, they are more than 5000 4th, 5thand 6th graders to participate each year!
