School Bus Safety

Release Date: August 31, 2017

As the school year starts up again, Kingston Police wish to remind drivers approaching a school bus to be alert and prepared to stop. Children may be crossing the roadway to get on or off the bus and it is every driver’s responsibility to ensure they can do so safely. If the upper red lights are flashing drivers in both directions must stop. If there is a median dividing the roadway, drivers on the opposite side are not required to stop.

Drivers who pass a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing can be charged and face fines from $400 to $2000 and six demerit points. Subsequent offences can result in fines from $1,000 to $4,000, six demerit points and up to six months in jail. It’s important to note that vehicle owners can be charged if their vehicle illegally passes a stopped school bus, even if they weren’t driving.
