Cranbrook RCMP issues reminder on fines for passing school busses

When the wheels on the bus stop going round and round yours have to as well.

The Cranbrook RCMP is reminding residents of the fines in place for failing to stop for a school bus.

All vehicles travelling in either direction need to come to a complete stop when the red lights on the school bus are flashing.

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

Title: The lights on the school bus by the Cranbrook RCMP

Verse 1: The lights on the school bus flash yellow then red
Yellow then Red
Yellow then Red
The lights on the school bus flash yellow then red
To keep all the children safe!

Verse 2: When the light flashes yellow we slow, not speed
Slow not speed
Slow not speed
When the light flashes yellow we slow, not speed
To keep all the children safe!

Verse 3: When the light flashes red we all must stop
All must stop
All must stop
When the light flashes red we all must stop
To keep all the children safe!

Verse 4: When the bus continues on, we roll along
Roll along
Roll along
When the bus continues on, we roll along
To keep all the children safe!” said Cranbrook RCMP officials.
