Police remind drivers to watch out around school buses

Posted:

Rockford Police remind drivers to be careful and follow the laws around school buses.

When the lights are flashing and the stop arm is activated for loading and unloading, Illinois law requires drivers to stop.  That includes traffic in both directions.  If a bus is stopped on a four lane highway, the people behind the bus have to stop, drivers in the opposite direction don't have to.  Police say drivers are responsible for watching out for children.  Officers will be looking for people not following the laws.  If you get pulled over and get convicted, you could lose your license for three months.
