Reminder: School Buses Soon Back On The Roads

As the new school year is set to get under­way, the Ohio High­way Patrol is remind­ing dri­vers to watch out for stopped school buses on the road­ways.

Dri­vers are cau­tioned to stop at least 10 feet back when approach­ing a school bus from either direc­tion if it has it’s flash­ing lights on and extended arm out.

It’s some­thing that the High­way Patrol takes very seri­ously. They say that from 2011 to 2013, more than 4,000 dri­vers in Ohio were con­victed of fail­ing to stop for a school bus that was pick­ing up or drop­ping off passengers.
