Why Don’t People Stop For School Busses
We are almost past the halfway point in the school season and I'm still hearing from bus drivers and seeing for myself that people aren't stopping for busses.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation post rules so that motorists are driving safely around schools and school buses. I would think the stop sign would be enough to make people stop, but it seems not. Learn the rules!! It could mean the difference between waiting a couple of minutes or tragedy.
MnDOT says that each year, more kids are tragically killed outside of school buses than inside as occupants. Motorists need to pay more attention when approaching a school bus either from the front or back. The fine for violating the school bus stop arm law is $500 and I would argue that it's not enough by at least half. So, here are the rules from a CBS broadcaster.
