Four specific bus safety problems are considered with particular attention to school buses, namely, driving visibility, identification of the vehicle when stopped or slowly moving, seats and seating accommodation, emergency evacuation. An examination is made of how best the latest research findings, especially the U.C.L.A. test results, might be applied economically by a government regulatory body to a bus safety program. The role of government in the safety field, both nationally and internationally, is discussed and policy guide lines indicated. /Author/
