stop arm, or to make contact with a school child within 30 feet of a school bus. A violation under this subsection is a misdemeanor and is punishable on conviction by a fine of not more than $500.
Boysun stresses that young children are often excited about getting on the bus or returning home, and they aren’t always thinking about looking out for traffic.
Drivers should also be aware of activity buses that might make stops to drop off students while returning from an event.
He reminds residents that many schools have cameras on the exterior of their buses in order to record traffic violations.
“Everybody is in a hurry,” Boysun said. “They need to slow down a little to give our drivers and children a chance.”
