If a School Bus has it’s stop sign out, what should you do?

On February 25, 2016 a 53 year-old female from Talbotville found out what happens if you don’t. She was issued a ticket for “Failing to stop for a School Bus – Overtaking” which comes with a hefty $490.00 fine and 6 points. The school bus driver was travelling in the curb lane of a multilane highway. He activated his lights and stop sign to let a student off when the female driver travelling in the same direction continued to drive right past in the middle lane.

It is a serious offence to neglect the safety features of a school bus that are created to protect innocent children on their way to and from school. Please stop! Below is an image explaining when and where to stop.

    Really?!?! How long have school busses been taking kids too and from school? And being 53 years old you should know better, this is a case that the person should have their license revised back to the second stage of the 3 stages of getting their license and made to go back to drivers education class and it be mandatory to do so before they can go for a driving test to get their full license back!!!
