Ready to run, are you?

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff

This year the Ashby buses will run over one mil­lion kilo­me­ters on their 41 routes. As is the case for all school bus con­trac­tors, their buses are fully in­spected be­fore classes start this week. They are safe, the driv­ers are qual­i­fied and you are too. Al­most all of us fol­low the rules, giv­ing head­way to the bus ahead of us, stop­ping a good dis­tance be­hind, check­ing three times rather than two when pass­ing one and never, as in never, pass­ing one when it is stopped. There are names for the few that don’t seem to re­al­ize how easy th­ese rules are: One starts with an M with two O’s and ends with an N, an­other with eight letters starts with I and ends with E and, fi­nally, there is Stu…, not stu­dent, STUPID.
