School Bus Safety

A Camden County Superior Court jury this week awarded $5 million to a teenage girl who was struck by a drunk driver after her school bus let her off at a dangerous and unapproved stop. According to court documents, plaintiff's attorneys argued that the school bus driver ordered the Gloucester County woman to exit the bus about one-third of a mile from her home and walk down a busy, high speed road with no sidewalks, instead of dropping her at the designated stop in front of her home. The driver did that an alleged 40 times throughout the school year prior to accident in an effort to shorten his bus route.
