Why Do School Buses Still Look The Same?

8 026
On the outside, school buses haven't changed much in almost 100 years, and there's a reason for that. A 1939 conference determined the yellow color, black text, and boxy shape that have come to symbolize the iconic childhood transport. Buses have changed a lot on the inside since the conference and they continue to be the safest way to get to school - about 70 times safer than a car, according to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I don't think school buses are more regulated than a commercial motor vehicle. A truck carrying hazardous materials, with a e-log is more regulated. It's a lot of work, in the details for the driver.

This is just in the US. But if you see school buses across countries they have changed. In fact, some top private schools it’s luxury with AC.

Have US school buses ever had rollsigns fitted? Some pics show SCHOOL BUS behind a glass panel. I'm sure I've seen them with text other than SCHOOL BUS on the front.

The problem with today's school buses is the large amount of black color in the front and back taking away from the yellow and the failure of switching to brighter warning lights now used by all other emergency vehicles as in police ambulance and fire trucks. All those have adjusted their lighting system to increase their visibility to the traffic, especially emergency lighting to the regular drivers level by adding emergency lights low to the ground, remember the old saying "Keep your eyes on the road". Today's buses need to duplicate their emergency lights system at the bumper level and take in consideration that incoming traffic is usually beside the bus, not directly in front or when coming towards the bus, so having flashing lights way above the traffic and not directed at the traffic goes a long way as why so many vehicles misses those signals. Another things that seems to be miss is the time of the day those buses are on the roads, early morning and late afternoon when the sun as at it's lowest and more blinding.
