As part of National School Bus Safety Week, Location #12675 in Methacton, PA, joined forces with local and state law enforcement for the 21st annual Operations Safe Stop.
Operation Safe Stop is a public awareness and enforcement campaign designed to educate motorists that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal.
During the week of the campaign, law enforcement officers either followed or monitored several Methacton school buses during their morning runs. If an officer noticed a driver illegally passing a school bus, the motorist was pulled over and given a citation. Officers also educated motorists about a school bus safe zone.
“It just goes to show that when we all work together with the same goal to keep our students safe… amazing things happen,” said Location Manager Amy Hoffman.
