School is back in session and for many people around town that means getting used to buses being back out on the roads.
The police department has already received complaints and reports of people passing the school buses while stopped. This problem seems especially evident at the intersection by Kersten Auto.

They insist drivers slow down to a complete stop when seeing the lights. Do not try to beat the school bus stop arm.
Passing a school bus that has its stop arm out carries a fine of $500. These fines are hefty because young students lives are at risk.
Police as to please stop and give the kids a chance to get on and off the busses safely.
