Stop for school buses: Fines increased

CCSD focuses on bus safety ahead of the new school year

Red flashing lights on buses indicate students are either entering or exiting the bus.

School has begun in several states, and many bus companies nationwide said they face a driver shortage, USA Today reported.

A statement from the state police post in Harlan says motorists should use extra caution anytime they are near a school bus, especially one that is slowing or has stopped.

These rules are a matter of life and death. Every school year the Indiana State Police receives numerous complaints about school bus stop arm violations from school corporations around the state. This is particularly true during the school year. Don't try to pass it and try to beat the bus.

According to Georgia law, vehicles traveling in both directions must stop when a school bus activates its stop-arm on a two-lane road or a multi-lane road with no median or barrier. Vehicles must stop and should remain stopped until all loading students are aboard in the morning or all unloading passengers have cleared 12 feet off the roadway in the afternoon.

Transportation officials say another important key to student safety is motorists who are alert when they see a school bus.

But once drivers are on Veterans Parkway, which has a grass median, they must stop only for a bus going in their direction. This week, the team reported that the bus system is now about 200 drivers shy of what is needed to keep buses running as the school year starts.

Fifteen other buses that failed last week's inspection will be re-inspected next week. "We're pretty obvious", said Merri Beechboard of Hayden Anderson Transit System, which operates the largest fleet of school buses in Madison County for Anderson Community Schools. "Please remind your students drivers of the speed limits as well".

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, from 2003 to 2012, 174 school-age children died in school-transportation related crashes.

Barr-Reeve has also added some new stops along CR 900E, better known as the Odon/Cannelburg Road, of which motorists should take note.

More than 5,800 school bus drivers participated in this year's survey, which was conducted April 25.
