MOTORIST RESPONISIBILITIES AROUND SCHOOL BUSSES
Help keep our area children safe from unsafe drivers. Motorists must stop when the school bus stop arms/lights are deployed. If you witness a driver who doesn’t stop for a school bus, safely pull over and record everything you can remember about the incident:
  • Location, date and time
  • Make, model, colour and license plate
  • Confirm that the bus was yellow with “school bus” written on both ends
  • Size of the bus (small or large)
  • Status of the bus (stopped or moving)
  • Red flashing lights (on or off)
  • Children boarding or exiting the bus
  • Driver passed from the front or from behind the bus
Immediately contact police by phone or in person and provide as much information as you can, including the names of any witnesses or photographs.
Remember, the penalty for not stopping for a school bus is a minimum fine $402 and 6 demerit points.
