As the parent of a student, please review the following bus safety reminders for all motorists and share them with a neighbor or friend:
Never pass on the right side of a school bus where children enter or exit. This is illegal and can have tragic results.
Yellow flashing lights mean the bus is preparing to stop and load or unload children. Motorists need to slow down and prepare to stop.
Red flashing lights and an extended stop arm mean the bus has stopped and children are boarding or exiting the bus. Motorists must come to a complete stop a safe distance from the bus and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the stop arm is retracted, and the bus begins moving before they start driving again.
Watch out for children who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking about getting there safely.
Slow down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in the neighborhood. Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops.
Be alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
When approaching a bus stop with children waiting for the bus, slow down and drive with caution. Children are unpredictable with their behavior and they made accidentally step into the street unaware of traffic.
If your in the process of buying a home be sure to check the schools bus schedule.
