Q: I'm Worried About a Driver Hitting My Child as He or She Gets On and Off the Atlanta School Bus. How is My Child Kept Safe, and What Should I Do If My Child is Hurt?
A:Georgia law requires motorists to come to a complete stop when children are getting on and off the bus. Motorists who do not stop may be fined significant amounts of money, especially for repeat offenses. That is - if they are caught.
In an effort to prevent tragic Atlanta car accidents, some school districts in the area have installed cameras on their school buses. The cameras are designed to capture the license plate number of any car that does not stop when children are getting on or off the bus.
If a driver fails to stop, hits a child, and causes that child to be injured, then the driver may be liable for damages. If your child has been hurt in an Atlanta bus crash, then please contact an experienced Atlanta car accident lawyer today for more information.
