School bus drivers test their skills

Posted: Updated:

Bus drivers from across the Southeast put their driving skills to the test in Huntsville Friday.

The parking lot at Milton Frank Stadium became the test ground. 24 school bus drivers got behind the wheel to show off their skills. They had to maneuver through turns, practice parallel parking, and be sure not to hit any of the strategically placed markers.

"I think it builds up a higher level of awareness when I'm driving down the public roads and meeting other vehicles, making me a safer driver," said Eddie Beam, a bus driver from Kentucky.

While drivers came from across the country, most were from Alabama. The winner of the school bus rodeo receives $500.
