The Missouri State Highway Patrol has released results from their annual school bus inspection program for the 2017-2018 school year.

Across the state, over 12 thousand school buses were inspected twice within the past year. Buses with no defective items found receive an “approved” rating, those found with defective items that do not constitute an immediate danger receive a “defective” rating, and those posing immediate danger are taken out of service. Of all the inspected buses, 90.6% received an “approval” rating by inspection personnel.
