Letter: Reminder to stop for school busses with flashing lights

Twice per day my children are picked up by their school bus and twice per day drivers zoom by the bus without a thought.

Twice per day my children are picked up by their school bus and twice per day drivers zoom by the bus without a thought. Someone’s child is going to be run over by an inattentive driver some day and I hope it is not one of mine.

People need to be reminded that B.C. law states: Do not pass school bus when red lights are flashing (Regulatory). It is illegal to pass, in either direction, a stopped school bus upon which red lights are flashing alternately. Colour: Black on white except lights are red and bus is yellow. Red, yellow and white reflecterized.

Whether the sign is posted or not, STOP!

If the bus lights are flashing, STOP both ways! The poor bus driver is only trying to make sure that their kids are getting home safely.
