Ever see the sides of a school bus? If you were to build one, you may not realize that almost every single yellow school bus has black lines on the side of it.
But have you ever wondered what they are for? They actually DO serve a purpose.
School bus driver and YouTuber ClawBoss, who often answers questions about the vehicles on his YouTube channel, said those markings can help first responders in an emergency.
“They all have these black rails,” he says in the video. “They actually tell you something.”
One line marks the floor of the bus. Another marks the bottom of the seats. And the top line shows the top of the seats.
“Not only do these add structure to the side of the bus so if the bus gets hit it’s stronger, but in the event of an accident they actually give firefighters an idea of where to cut,” he explains.
See? You learn something new every day!
