School bus stop moved from strip club

Myrtle Beach - Officials in South Carolina are moving a school bus stop that was near a strip club after parents complained.

WPDE-TV reports that children had to wait in the parking lot of a strip club in Atlantic Beach to catch the school bus.

Misty Umphries, a mother who waits at the stop with her children, says she had to explain to her 4-year-old the meaning of "topless".

Horry County transportation director Jim Wright previously said the stop was the central point of four blocks it needed to accommodate. Wright was concerned that moving the stop to a community centre that parents suggested would require some children to walk farther.

District officials have since decided to create two bus stops in the area. Neither is at the strip club.

    What was a 4-year-old doing travelling alone on a school bus? Misty Umphries, "topless" means without a shirt, blouse or garment covering the upper part of the body. There. Easy hey?

      It's not a public bus, it's a school bus, that's what they're for. Kids to go to school on. Duh.

    In The U.S children catch a specific School bus to and from School everyday.Each school in every county has strict safety regulations to ensure childrens safety. It is not just a bus that goes past the school like in SA.This also means that children can get to and from School even if their parents do not have access to transport.
