The school bell is about to ring for kids in Ontario and the OPP would like to remind you of school bus safety.
Everyday in Ontario 800,000 children use a school bus.
When approaching from the front, leave a safe distance between you and the bus. When coming from behind, stop at least 20 metres away. Do not proceed before the red lights stop flashing and the stop arm is retracted.
You must obey these laws regardless of how many lanes or the speed limit on the road .
Drivers who fail to stop are subject to being charged resulting in fines ranging from $400 to $2,000 and six demerit points
