It’s a scary thought that our children are not safe on a school bus.  I understand as humans, getting annoyed behind the wheel is normal. Yet, I think bus drivers should be held to a higher standard.

Brake checking should not be done when you are alone in your car and definitely not with a busload of children. That’s common sense.  See video below.
