“Distracted driving is our number one problem,” Jeff Young, director of transportation for Anderson County Schools, said.
He said a lot of drivers don’t stop for school buses. “It’s been a problem for years, but it seems like it’s getting worse,” he added.
Young said most of these incidents occur on the main thoroughfares. “On the smaller roads it’s not a problem because the bus takes up enough of the road that motorists must pay attention,” Young explained.
