A Reminder About School Bus Safety

A Reminder About School Bus Safety

School buses remain the safest way for children to get to and from school because of a team of very hard working people. Drivers, monitors, teachers, children and MORE help to ensure this school bus safety. Other drivers on the road ALSO contribute. Remember to be aware of your surroundings as you are driving to work. Take this opportunity to see how a school bus stacks up. Our info graphic puts things into perspective.

Share the road with school buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians!

Stop for School Buses – Rockland County to Motorists

Do you know why school buses are equipped with STOP signs?

What do you do when you see an activated STOP sign on a school bus?

School buses activate lights and signs when loading and unloading

Lights and signs activate every time school buses stop to load or unload


Today, April 18, 2013, Rockland County Police are monitoring school buses as part of Operation Safe Stop. The annual event promotes safety and increases awareness to the dangers of illegally passing stopped school buses. Drivers who illegally pass stopped school buses will be ticketed and fined. A person found guilty can get five points imposed on his or her license and possible imprisonment of up to 30 days for a first offense and up to 180 days for a third conviction in three years. Passing a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing and the stop sign deployed puts children in danger.

Motorists illegally passing school buses are not isolated occurrences. Each year the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS) conducts a National Stop Arm Violation Count. In 2012 NASDPTS found that nearly 100,000 bus drivers reported 39,760 total stop arm passing incidents, often involving several cars in each incident during the one-day survey.

It is impossible to know why a person decides to run this particular stop sign. Does the driver not see it? Does the driver not know they are supposed to stop? Are these drivers just in a hurry? Some people think most of these drivers simply do not know the law.

When was the last time you read the laws related to stopping for a school bus in your state?

This Ohio woman was caught driving on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus that was loading special needs children. She was caught on video because she did it multiple times!

My Cycling Hobby Becomes “Sharing the Road”

I’ve never considered my self an athlete, but I have always had a bunch of hobbies. As I’ve gotten older, those hobbies have transitioned into exercise. Running/jogging, cycling, swimming, hiking, SCUBA diving tend to fill the weekends now. Each of these activities include a certain level of risk, especially those that involve training on or using roads in general. This year my goal was to try to better broadcast a message of safety. My pet project morphed into our “Sharing the Road” campaign. Throughout the spring and summer School Training Solutions is going to offer select online courses at a discount while I participate in cycling, running, swimming and triathlon events. I hope these courses will remind drivers to share the road with pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, school buses, and other vehicles.

Check our “Sharing the Road” webpage for updates and photos about the 263 mile bicycle ride.
