National Motorists Association disagrees with Pennsylvania distracted driving story

According to James C. Walker of Ann Arbor, Mich., “people should always remember that more than 63 percent of the under age 19 pedestrians killed in school transportation related crashes are killed by the buses — not by passing cars, per data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covering from 1999 through 2016.

“Wouldn’t there be a better safety return to find some electronics to stop the bus drivers from causing those fatalities — before going after the much smaller proportion due to passing cars?” Walker said.
