bus safety statistics
Travelling on a bus is one of the safest ways to travel on the road. A 1994 report based on Australian road safety statistics found that travelling to school by bus is:
7 times less likely to cause serious injury or death than being driven in a family car,
31 times less likely to cause the same than walking
228 times less likely to cause the same than cycling.

Where-as walking to school is pretty unlikely to kill anyone, unless you walked around a corner suddenly and gave someone a heart-attack
Anyway...I found these numbers being quoted on a bus company website...guess which one
