Making a turn with a school bus is a procedure school bus drivers perform many times during the course of a day. One of the most important considerations during a turn is the tail swing of the bus, which occurs when the rear of the bus makes a wide arch during the turn. Without a proper understanding of the tail swing on each type of bus a driver may operate, the chances of hitting a vehicle, signpost, or other obstacle when turning is great. This video is hosted by a certified California school bus driver instructor and addresses tail swing in both conventional and transit type school buses.
