Ottawa Bus Accident Safety
Over the past few weeks , we have seen troubling reports over our city’s transit system and Ottawa bus accident. Last week, 43 OC Transpo buses were pulled for weekend repairs, a double decker bus caught fire with 70 passengers on board and a bus driver was fired over reckless driving through a rail crossing.
How to avoid an Ottawa bus accident
While you, as a passenger, have little control over the safety of the bus or the actions of the driver, you should always be diligent and cautious when riding public transit.
- Never run after or next to a moving bus.
- Stay well back of the curb when waiting for the bus.
- Wait until the bus comes to a full stop before approaching.
- Watch your step, especially at night or in wet weather.
- When using bike racks, always stay in view of the bus operator.
- Take a seat if possible and always use the handrails/handholds.
- Step away from the bus after exiting.
- If you drop something when exiting, leave it on the ground until the bus drives away.
