Beware of buses, students 


Going back to school this year is going to look different for students and teachers. What hasn’t changed, though, are the rules around school bus safety. 

Chatham-Kent police want to remind all motorists that there will be an increase in traffic and pedestrians, as students return to school this week and next, as part of a staggered start. 

Reduce your speed in the area of crosswalks and school zones. 

With school buses back on the road, all drivers must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights and stop arm flashing, regardless of the speed limit or number of lanes. Motorists failing to comply may be issued a $490 fine and six demerit points.
