State police call on public to drive carefully around school buses


In a press release, state police asked for motorists to drive carefully around school buses as students return to classes in the next week.

Police said motorists should pay close attention while in neighborhoods and designated school zones, especially in the mornings and afternoons when schools open and close. Motorists also are asked to come to a complete stop when meeting a stopped school bus or approaching one at an intersection with the red lights flashing and a stop arm extended.

“School zones mean school bus traffic, school speed zones, and children walking,” state police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico said. “By being alert and obeying traffic laws, the public can help law enforcement keep our children safe as they head back to school.”
