Pay Attention, Kids Go Back To School Today


The march break is over and that means kids and school buses are back on the road.

Back to school today for thousands of students across the region.

So be aware of the students in case they are not paying attention.

Same goes for the school buses.

Do not pass a bus when those red lights are flashing.

As Kirkland Lake OPP Constable Adam Gauthier points out, it can be costly. ” The fine for failing to stop for a school bus with it’s upper red lights flashing is anywhere from $400 to $2000 dollars, and 6 demerit points.

In Ontario, school-bus drivers and other witnesses can report vehicles that have illegally passed a school bus.

If you are the vehicle’s registered owner, these same fines may be applied to you.
