Kaufman ISD makes major changes to daily bus routes...

In light of the horrible tragedy that occured last week, in which a 7 year old student was killed by a driver that failed to adhere to the flashing lights of a stopped bus, Kaufman ISD has taken the safety initiative to re-route their normal bus routines.

Instead of allowing the children to exit the bus and cross in front of the bus where they can't see oncoming traffic, Kaufman ISD has re-routed the buses daily routes so that the bus drivers are now able to pull up to the driveway near the students home so that they can exit the bus without crossing the dangerous roads and highways. If it's not possible for the drivers to let the students out near a driveway, then the drivers will allow the the students to exit at a safer location that prevents the children from crossing in front of the bus.

Out here in Kaufman County, a lot of the students live in rural areas, that are close to State Highways and Farm to Market Roads, that allow drivers to drive up to sixty miles an hour.  Sometimes drivers are not paying attention or are in such a hurry that they fail to stop when the bus driver has on it's flashing lights.

This is a great Safety Initiative and it shows that Kaufman ISD is showing great concern about their students.  Yes, this re-routing may take a few minutes more, but if a few minutes can save the life of an unsuspecting child trying to cross the dangerous rural roads, then it's certainly worth the inconvenience.

I commend Kaufman ISD for taking this initiative.  I just hate it had to be at the loss of innocent lives. 

 Good move Kaufman ISD!
