CVRCMP stepping up patrols around school bus pickup zones

The Columbia Valley RCMP is reminding residents of the rules around passing school buses.

Police officials said they have been receiving complaints about vehicles passing buses while their flashing red lights are activated for a pickup or drop off of students.

They said it’s been especially bad along Toby Creek Road.

RCMP officials said they will be increasing their patrols and utilizing bus dash cameras for issuing tickets.
