The North Bay Police Service tells BayToday that there were zero school bus related infractions to report in our city for Tuesday, Wednesday or yesterday.
Patrol officers will continue to monitor school bus routes, watching for any illegal passing of the stopped school buses with their overhead red lights flashing and any other Highway Traffic Act offences which may occur.
Targeted speed enforcement will continue, specific to school zones, and observations for any other highway traffic act offence which may occur.
The North Bay Police Service’s Back to School Traffic Enforcement Campaign continues every weekday until Friday September 15th. Drivers are reminded to stop for the school bus in both directions when its upper red lights are flashing and it has come to a complete stop, regardless if it is a multi-lane highway unless divided by a barrier or median.
Reduce speed to 40 km/h in community safety zones and wait for pedestrians, including school crossing guards, to completely cross the road before proceeding at school crossings. The North Bay Police would like to remind all drivers to continue to be vigilant and safe while operating a motor vehicle, specific to watching for Stopped school buses with their overhead red lights flashing.
