Drivers told to learn school bus stop arm laws

Avoiding OPS school busing issues

Wait for the bus driver to signal that it's safe to cross. The Legislature is requiring them to do it.

"We patrol in marked and unmarked units behind the buses when we can", he said, adding that incidents seem to most frequently occur on the highways and occasionally on county roads.

"Our focus is to get our children to school safely in the morning, and get them home safely at night", said driver Lynn Robinett.

Barr-Reeve's School Resource Officer Mark Bledsoe said drivers around the schools should take note of the new 35 miles per hour school zone signage on CR 100N.

A driver who passes a stopped school bus illegally is endangering children and is subject to significant fines and possibly other penalties.

Students in southwest Indiana will soon be heading back to school and Indiana State Police would like to remind everyone the importance of watching for students and for stopping for school buses while they are loading and/or unloading children.

Dr. Michele Moore wrote that the school corporation hired True Consultant Service in February 2017 to reorganize routes to accommodate students who had previously walked to school and arrange buses by student age groups.

If there is no unimproved median or barrier, then all lanes in all directions must stop.

"Things we didn't do three four years ago, we didn't have to advertise because we always had a lot of applications and a lot of people coming in", said Don Boyanowski with Boyo Transportation, which provides school transportation in four counties in central Pennsylvania.

"School bus drivers don't like getting caught behind a school bus", Beechboard said.

Bus drivers in the Lee County and Tupelo school districts spend time before school starts reviewing safety guidelines and practicing their routes, as reported by the Daily Journal's Emma Crawford Kent.

Motorists on a highway divided by a barrier or unimproved median-a concrete or cable barrier, say, or a grass median-are required to stop only if they are traveling in the same direction as the school bus. "Pay attention and stop for buses to help keep our children safe". Once the bus is fully stopped, the flashing red lights will activate and the stop arm will deploy. "They have school and friends on their mind".
