[ARCHIVED] Reminder: please stop for school buses!

Back of school bus

 In partnership with Eugene School District 4J and Bethel School District, the Eugene Police Traffic Safety Unit and the Youth Services Officer are currently focusing on complaints of drivers not stopping for school buses. 

 

ORS 811.155 requires drivers to stop and remain stopped for school buses displaying flashing safety lights.  These safety lights are activated by bus drivers at stops to allow children to safely get on and off their bus.  This law applies to vehicles on BOTH sides of the road!  

 

An expensive ticket would be bad, colliding with a child would be tragic.  Please be patient with the kiddos and the bus lights -- wait a few seconds, and maybe even wave at the nice bus drivers who are getting our kids to and from school!
