Stop for the School Bus

Picture of school bus stop sign.

With school underway, many buses are on the road transporting students to and from school and school events.  It is important that all drivers obey the traffic laws especially those pertaining to stopping when a bus is stopping or stopped to load or unload students.  The law is very specific in that when the bus stop arm is out ALL traffic going in either direction is required to stop until the bus stop arm is retracted.  When approaching a bus with it's warning lights on indicating it will be stopping please stop so our students can safely exit the bus and head to their home.

We appreciate your assistance with this safety matter for our students.
