Wednesday at 11pm: A school bus safety investigation

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - They are the buses that bring your children to and from school every day.

You hope the school district is sticking to a regular and rigorous maintenance schedule.

In many cases, that is exactly what is happening.

However, a WBTV investigation finds that some buses are still on the roads when they should be parked in the garage.

Worn and broken parts, safety violations, and more.  How safe are the buses in your district?  How do you know?

Here's a preview of our investigation which airs Wednesday at 11pm on WBTV.
