Know the law on passing school buses or you’ll get a ticket

It is back to school time again next week.  And we want to remind you that school buses will be out on the roads again.  Here is a video about stopping for school buses.

 We would like you to know that we will be conducting school bus enforcement activities on random dates (we’ve already started).  That means that we’ll have an officer on a bus somewhere in town who will be acting as a spotter.  He or she will call other following officers when they see a driver pass a bus illegally.  The officers following will be stopping the violators.  We are trying to make a safer environment for kids.  

So leave plenty of time to get where you are going so you won’t be tempted to pass a stopped school bus and get a ticket.

Have a great school year.
