Police Urge Extra Caution Around School Buses

Failure to comply with state laws could not only put children in danger, but also could result in hefty fines.

Boydo said the most important feature on a school bus is the driver.

Ringle says it's not often drivers blatantly ignore the stop sign, but usually they're distracted.

"Sometimes, they are just confused", Tillman said. The Legislature is requiring them to do it.

When a school bus stops on a multi-lane roadway without a barrier and the red flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, all motorists MUST stop.

But once drivers are on Veterans Parkway, which has a grass median, they must stop only for a bus going in their direction. Police say it's up to all the other drivers to keep students safe on and off the bus.

He uses his Twitter to remind people what to do when coming up to a school bus with a flashing stop sign.

And illegal passing of school buses is a national problem.

"Let's have a safe and accident free school year". He said another done last fiscal year reported some 100,000 violations on one day.

A driver who passes a stopped school bus illegally is endangering children and is subject to significant fines and possibly other penalties. Past year in Kentucky, three people died in bus accidents.

What are the school bus laws? Those issued a citation face a mandatory court appearance. "That's the reward. You impact lives and you impact them in a positive way to safely get them to school and safely get them home".

"After that, it's in law enforcement's hands", he said.

Altering a route or schedule to avoid a bus is one way motorists can help improve safety.

Providers say they are willing to take on anyone who can complete the training and background checks.

On two-lane roads, such as county roads, if the bus stops with its red lights flashing and stop arm extended, all drivers must stop.

Madison County school bus drivers say that's the most common statement motorists make after a school bus versus vehicle crash. But 19 are killed getting on and off buses.

Students are instructed to wait until their bus driver signals for them to cross the road as a precaution against oncoming traffic.

Kids: Walk to school with a friend or in a groups for safety.
