DPS, State Patrol Reminding Drivers to Be Aware of School Buses Returning to Roadways

With schools starting to open throughout Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Minnesota State Patrol are co-branding the message of driver awareness now that school buses are back on the roads.

Despite the efforts of alerting motorists that children are entering or exiting a bus – flashing lights and an extended stop arm – some drivers attempt to speed around buses, with occasional tragic results and numerous near-misses.

 DPS and the state patrol want drivers to be aware that buses are on the road and the precious cargo they carry with them. They have released a video reminding drivers of the dangers (and unlawfulness) of driving around a bus with its red lights on and stop arm extended and other safety precautions drivers should. That video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwKQ2GpsNFE&t=20s
