How to Navigate a Bus With Flashing Lights and Stop Signs Out
In a recent video posted by the Victoria Police Department, Office Kneif announced that Victoria PD would soon be conducting a special operation about school buses. So now would be a good time to revisit how to navigate a stopped bus so you don't get fined because it's EXPENSIVE! If you fail to stop for a school bus you will be fined the amount of $810.00.
Passing a stopped school bus is a Class A misdemeanor if the driver causes serious bodily injury to a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or anyone else. A second offense could lead to jail time. Be sure to slow down, look out for kids crossing the street and be aware of your surroundings. As always, put down your cell phones.
DON'T FORGET ABOUT NATIONAL NIGHT OUT:
The Victoria Police Department will also host a National Night Out Kick-Off Party on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Deleon Plaza. The kickoff party is a free family-friendly event featuring entertainment from area youth, children’s activities, and information from local community groups.
