Stop For School Buses First day, Every Day
School is back in session and the New York Association for Pupil Transportation is urging the motoring public to stop for stopped school buses. It’s the law when a bus comes to a stop and its red lights are flashing, motorists must stop. The group says on any given day more than 50,000 motorists in New York will pass a stopped school bus and endanger the life and welfare of a child. Motorists that do no stop and are convicted of the moving violation face fines ranging from $250 to $400 for the first violation, possible jail time and five points on their license.
