Governor Issues Safety Proclamation

Recently, Governor Jerry Brown issued a signed Proclamation to promote school bus safety.  Michael Rea, Chapter 13 President and CASTO’s Legislation Chairman accepted the Proclamation at the California Highway Patrols Executive Branch in Sacramento.  Issuing the Proclamation was Commissioner Farrow.


Also in attendance at the award ceremony was President Nikki Hughes, CHP Commercial Vehicle Section Gary Ritz and Jantze Douglas; Assistant Commissioner K.P. Green, from the Department of Education, Anna Borges and Donna Anderson.


October consistently ranks as the month with the highest rate of school bus related collisions, which is why October is chosen to remind everyone to pay attention to the roads and to obey traffic laws.  By focusing while driving and being extra cautious around school and school buses, the state is staking important steps to ensure the safety of our young children.


Thanks to the diligence of California’s drivers, there has not been a school bus passenger fatality in our state since 1995.  Commissioner Farrow hopes that all Californians will maintain their safe driving habits, and together we can continue to get our children to and from school safely for another year.


CASTO was founded in 1968 to promote safe pupil transportation for all California children. We are dedicated to the safety of all children through education and training in every avenue of transportation.

CASTO is recognized by State and Federal agencies and other professional organizations as the leader of school transportation safety in California.
