My children have been changed to a bus stop 1/2 mile away, down an unsafe road; is there anything that I can do?

Question Details:

Our bus driver has been asked verbally by us to slow down on our dead-end road. Twice. Now, he has changed the bus route to where our kids have to walk nearly half a mile in the near dark down an unsafe gravel road to pavement. I have asked our superintendent to help, and he has brushed us off. What can we do as taxpaying citizens to rectify this? Is there a legal precedent? This stop has been in effect over 40 years with 2 school districts, and have never had a problem.
