School Bus Safety
Federal accident investigators are considering new safety recommendations for school buses, large trucks and commercial drivers based on two similar fatal crashes in New Jersey and Florida last year.
In New Jersey, nearly half the buses fail their state inspections. And as alarming as that may sound, the CBS 3 I-Team found some bus operators have even higher failure rates.
About four-fifths of the problems were corrected the same day and the bus safely returned to the road. But for the remaining 20 percent, the shortcomings were deemed more serious.
