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.
