Sgt. Roughton wanted us to remind everyone about school bus safety, especially on highways (like Main Street Road/Hwy 43). It is against the law to pass a stopped school bus in Missouri, unless you are on a four lane divided highway. The following is taken from the Missouri Drivers Handbook and is on pages 44-45.
Our kids are the future and their safety should be our priority. According to SaveMOLives website 6 children were killed in the US by cars ignoring the school bus safety laws - one of those was in Jasper county.
It just takes a few minutes to stop when a school bus is unloading or loading, so please STOP.
Thanks for stopping by to visit our online community, be sure and come by soon to visit us in person. We would love to meet you!
