Back to school means busier roads and side­walks

The Peterborough Examiner - - Local -

The On­tario Provin­cial Po­lice is re­mind­ing mo­torists that with the new school year start­ing Tues­day, mo­torists can ex­pect to see more pedes­tri­ans, cy­clists and school buses.

“Mo­torists are ad­vised to give them­selves ex­tra com­mut­ing time and pre­pare to have mi­nor de­lays,” the OPP say.

The law re­quires driv­ers en­coun­ter­ing a stopped school bus with its over­head red sig­nals flash­ing to stop be­fore reach­ing the bus, not mov­ing un­til the bus moves or the lights stop flash­ing. The min­i­mum fine for fail­ing to stop for a school bus is $400 and six de­merit points.
