West Mahanoy City police work to ensure bus stop safety

West Mahanoy City police work to ensure bus stop safety”

Where a road divided into four or more lanes, only traffic driving in the same direction as the bus must stop.

West Mahanoy Township police joined other departments throughout Pennsylvania on Wednesday by participating in events held in conjunction with National School Bus Safety Week.

He added that it is hoped public awareness and enforcement efforts will educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both unsafe and illegal. "Texas parents can rest assured that DPS will not tolerate those who recklessly endanger children by ignoring the law".

The bus was transporting 15 students from Peterson Academic Center.

According to Texas statute, a driver - traveling in either direction on a roadway - must stop when approaching a school bus that is stopped and operating a visual signal. Bus drivers will activate yellow warning lights prior to the stop to warn traffic, and will display red flashing lights and a stop sign while the bus is stopped. Motorists who do not stop for the flashing red lights and crossing arm of a school bus put students and drivers in danger. The VIPS project also encourages people to report drivers who illegally pass a school bus.

It was the second year the police department participated in the safety week.

The Stand Up For School Bus Safety Coalition plans to educate and advocate around school bus safety in Hamilton County.

"The Stand Up For School Bus Campaign is very much needed" said Ezra Harris, president of the Woodmore Neighborhood Association.
