MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What are the long black lines on the sides of school busses?

With back to school only a few weeks away we’re starting to see school busses back on the roads again. You might notice the long black lines on the side of the busses, those aren’t just for show. They actually serve an important purpose. 

The placement of the black lines on the outside of the bus show where the floor line and seat lines are inside. That way, if there’s ever an accident or emergency, firefighters know where to cut. Smart!
