BACK TO SCHOOL = STUDENTS WALKING AND BUSES ON THE ROAD!

Students are heading back to class and motorists should be on the lookout for students AND school buses. The Hawkesbury Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to remind everyone that some school buses will be on the road this week, while the remainder will be back in service next week.

Safety is the number one priority.

Every driver, encountering a stopped school bus that has its overhead red signal-lights flashing, shall stop before reaching the bus and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the overhead red signal-lights have stopped flashing. The minimum fine for failing to stop is $400.

Many children walk to school and motorists should also be aware of the increased pedestrian traffic as children make their way to school. Many may be distracted by excitement for the first day of class. Slowdown in school zones and be extra cautious. Motorists should watch for Community Safety Zones, where speed limits are reduced and fines increased. Community safety zones are clearly marked with road signs and are found near schools.

Drivers can expect to see an increased police presence. Adjust your driving, pay attention and be prepared to stop for children and school buses.  Make it safe for everyone!
