OPP Release on School Bus decorum for drivers everywhere 

(Eastern Ontario) – Once again it is time for students to head back to school and for motorists to be on the lookout for school buses and students.  The OPP in East Region would like to remind everyone that some school buses will be back in service early next week, while others will be back onTuesday, September 6, 2011.

The public is reminded that every driver while on a highway while meeting a stopped school bus that has its overhead red signal-lights flashing shall stop before reaching the bus and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the overhead red signal-lights have stopped flashing. (Section 175(11) of the Highway Traffic Act)

Many of our children walk to school and motorist should also be aware of the increased pedestrian traffic around our local schools, as children make their way for their first exciting day.  Reduce your speed in school zone and be extra cautious.

Let’s make it safe for our children![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
