The On­ta­rio Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Rus­sell Coun­ty De­tach­ment re­minds mo­to­rists that school buses return to area roads. Mo­to­rists should be aware of the ex­pec­ted in­crease in pe­des­trians, cy­clists and school buses, and give them­selves ex­tra com­mu­ting time. In ac­cor­dance with the High­way Traf­fic Act, mo­to­rists en­coun­te­ring a stop­ped school bus that has its ove­rhead red si­gnal lights fla­shing shall stop be­fore rea­ching the bus and shall not pro­ceed un­til the bus moves or the ove­rhead red si­gnal lights have stop­ped fla­shing. The mi­ni­mum fine for fai­ling to stop for a school bus is $400 and six de­me­rit points. Dri­vers should al­so be pre­pa­red to yield to student pe­des­trians and cy­clists. Pa­rents of stu­dents who will be wal­king or cy­cling to school are en­cou­ra­ged to speak with their chil­dren about the rules of the road that ap­ply to them.
