Police Urge Extra Caution Around School Buses

Police Urge Extra Caution Around School Buses

But the most important thing to remember, who is riding the bus.

The Gwinnett County School District transports more than 115,000 students daily.

We place an enormous amount of responsibility on our school leaders already by asking them to take our children each day and mold them into future leaders of our community, let alone the daunting task of making sure they get to school and back home safely every single day.

The buses that failed are primarily used in the Harrisburg School District.

OH school buses travel more than one million miles each school year, transporting more than one million students daily. It's a split shift and requires a lot of patience, all reasons school officials say this year is especially hard finding drivers.

Unless the school bus is in an opposing lane that is separated by a concrete or grass barrier, all motorists must stop when the bus displays flashing red lights and/or stop arms.

I'm freerolling and it feels good". "I won without feeling like I was putting well at all", he said. Monahan also announced that the Players Championship would move from May to March.

Classes are starting in school districts around the state, and police are urging drivers to stay alert for buses that are loading or unloading children.

School bus drivers will activate flashing amber/yellow lights when preparing to stop to load and/or unload children.

"Extra caution and time will be needed because of the closing on SR 58 and especially because of the extra traffic that will be on CR 1400N and CR 1250N", he said, adding that buses and other larger vehicles may have a tougher time getting into the school grounds due to sharp turns.

Whether picking them up or dropping them off, bus drivers' main goal is to protect your children.

WINK News anchor Lois Thome posted content from the Department of Transportation emphasizing rules when dealing with buses on Facebook.

Even though there is a bit of work involved, Davenport says driving school buses is a rewarding experience.
