school bus lights

By Cst. Catherine Smith

School bus lights flash yellow then red

Yellow then Red

Yellow then Red

School bus lights flash yellow then red

To protect all children!

When the light flashes yellow, we are slowing down, not speeding

Don’t slow down

Don’t slow down

When the light flashes yellow, we are slowing down, not speeding

To protect all children!

When the light flashes red, we all have to stop

Everything must stop

Everything must stop

When the light flashes red, we all have to stop

To protect all children!

When the bus goes on, we ride

roll along

roll along

When the bus goes on, we ride

To protect all children!

Just a friendly reminder Cranbrook RCMP that it will soon be the start of the school year and that all vehicles traveling in both directions must come to a complete stop when the school bus’s red lights are flashing.

The fine for failing to stop for a school bus is $368. Other school zone related fines include $167 for failing to yield to a pedestrian at the crosswalk, $196 for speeding in the school zone or playground area 1-20 mph above limit and $253 for speeding in the school zone or playground zone when traveling 21 to 40 km. /h more.
