SCHOOL BUS SAFETY CONCERN
Cornwall, ON- The Cornwall Community Police Service are reminding motorist to be on the lookout for School Buses in our community. Motorists who do not stop for school buses, is a problem that we have every year, and this threatens the safety of our children.
There has been an increase in school bus violations recently. Police are reminding motorists to pay attention and be patient. When you see a school bus, watch for the flashing lights, come to a full stop. Whether you are meeting or overtaking the school bus and whether you are on a 2 lane roadway or more, STOP when you see the FLASHING LIGHTS.
We are taking a “zero tolerance level” on the enforcement of this type of violations. School bus operators are carrying violation forms, that they complete and turned over to police for investigation. This form contains details of the alleged offence such as, licence number of the offending vehicle, location, date & time of the offence, description of the driver.
