Parents and other representatives learned about the importance of protecting children on vehicles, including school buses, drawing from one tragic case of a student’s death after being left unsupervised on a school bus. Dr. Tri of the People’s Police Academy explained to the audience how they can ensure that students remain safe and travel safely on school buses, including measures to escape from a school bus in case of emergency.
