Distracted Driving Around Schools and Buses is Recipe for Disaster

12 August 2017

Ten school buses that failed a state police inspection last week all passed a second inspection on Wednesday.

Student Transportation of America and OPS are also doing dry runs.

Motorists, particularly those making the early morning commute to work, must keep in mind to slow down for children and to stop for school buses with flashing lights. Never pass a bus from behind, or from either direction if you are on an undivided road, if it is stopped to load or unload children.

Motorists failing to stop for school buses continue to be a serious issue that risks children's lives.

But once drivers are on Veterans Parkway, which has a grass median, they must stop only for a bus going in their direction.

"People running the stop arm, that's my biggest fear", said Paul Floyd who's been driving school buses for 11 years.

Applicants must also pass a drug test and physical, criminal history checks by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Pennsylvania State Police, and a child abuse history check.

As a result, Apple Music has spun-off the sing along segment into its own series, titled Carpool Karaoke: The Series . But Corden, who is an executive producer on the show said that the family should decide whether it is aired.

"Our focus is to get our children to school safely in the morning, and get them home safely at night", said driver Lynn Robinett.

When a school bus stops on a multi-lane roadway without a barrier and the red flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, all motorists MUST stop. "It's not unusual to have three or four violations a week here".

Ringle says it's not often drivers blatantly ignore the stop sign, but usually they're distracted.

Law enforcement takes school bus stop arm and school patrol crossing guard flag violations very seriously. A year ago in Kentucky, three people died in bus accidents.

Bell said SR 58 is expected to be closed for at least another month. Reduce speeds in and around school zones. "Throughout a 180-day school year, these sample results point to more than 14 million violations among America's motoring public". "I really, really, don't want to pull over a faculty member, but I will if I have to".

Barr-Reeve has also added some new stops along CR 900E, better known as the Odon/Cannelburg Road, of which motorists should take note. Of those 55 were occupants of school transportation vehicles and 119 were pedestrians, but school buses will remain one of the safest means of transportation.
