Montgomery locals

By Staff | Aug 23, 2011

Just a reminder that school starts next week for our Montgomery and Elimsport kids so please be extra vigilant when driving. The Pennsylvania School Bus Stopping Law states that you MUST STOP when you meet or overtake a stopped school bus with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended or when you approach an intersection where a school bus is stopped with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended. You MUST STOP at least ten (10) feet away from the school bus and you MUST WAIT until the red lights have stopped flashing and the stop arm has been withdrawn before moving. DO NOT MOVE until all the children have reached a place of safety. For more info, check online at www.drivesafepa.org/Traffic-Safety-Information-Center/School-Bus-Safety/
