School bus drivers face somewhat unique safety concerns as professional drivers. They carry what is perhaps our most precious cargo, face a wide range of distractions, and are subject to upholding laws other professional drivers are not held accountable for. The proposed synthesis will identify theses safety concerns, review the relevant literature and report on research surrounding these areas, and discuss methods for addressing these concerns based on synthesis responses
