Day care centers in South Florida and the rest of the State have a duty to provide safe transportation when this service is provided as part of the day care program. The day care center should make sure that the driver has a valid driver’s license and experience and training in driving the day care vehicle, van, or bus. Driver inattention, distraction, and negligence can prove to be quite dangerous when children are being transported. In Davie, Florida, a daycare van operated by the Nob Hill Academy recently collided with three other vehicles in an automobile accident. Seven children suffered personal injuries as the result of the crash. Most of the accident victims were transported to Memorial Regional Hospital – Hollywood, Florida for treatment and evaluation. News report state that the day care van driver failed to properly stop for a yellow school bus. One of the accident victims (an adult) was reported to be in critical condition.
