School buses are on the roadways – 

With the start of school, now is the perfect time to remind ourselves to be vigilant while sharing the roads with school buses.   

School bus safety tips for drivers:

  • Prepare to stop when a slowing bus has its overhead yellow lights flashing.
  • Stop at least 20 feet away from buses when red lights are flashing, unless driving in the opposite direction on a divided highway.
  • Slow down in or near school and residential areas.
  • Look for clues-such as safety patrols, crossing guards, bicycles, and playgrounds-that indicate children might be in the area.
  • Watch for children between parked cars and other objects.

School buses are like traffic signals:

  • When overhead lights are flashing yellow: Prepare to stop.
  • When overhead lights are flashing red: Stop.
  • When hazard warning lights are flashing: Proceed with caution.

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
