I watched two cars go through a school bus’s red lights today. It’s a special needs bus and it picks up a couple of kids, on Jackrabbit Lane, by the middle school. This happens often.

I don’t care if you slowed way down as you went by, you broke the law. Just stop for buses! After the disaster near Whitefish, you’d think people would be in the know. Just stop!

Then, there’s the crosswalk. Do not block them! It puts the kids into danger. I can’t see them, they can’t see me. I had a boy, almost hit, because he didn’t know I was coming to cross him and he darted out behind the car. Thank heavens to driver was obeying the law and driving the speed limit.

Between 7:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., there are kids crossing the street.

Do not look at me like you are surprised when I stick my lighted, flashing sign in front of your windshield. We are always there.

Please be aware of the laws regarding bus lights and school zones.
