A Reminder to Drivers as School Starts

THE NEW MEXICO STATE POLICE HAVE PRODUCED A VIDEO TO REMIND MOTORISTS OF THE LAW REGARDING SCHOOL BUSES. OFFICER RAY WILSON SAYS YOU CAN SEE THE VIDEO ON THE DEPARTMENT’S SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITES SUCH AS FACEBOOK AND TWITTER.

THE BIGGEST TAKE-AWAY IS THAT ALL TRAFFIC IN BOTH DIRECTIONS MUST COME TO A STOP IF THE BUS HAS ITS RED LIGHTS FLASHING AND THE STOP SIGN EXTENDED. THE RULE DOESN’T APPLY FOR TRAFFIC GOING IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF THE BUS IF THE ROAD HAS SOME FORM OF PHYSICAL BARRIER DOWN THE MIDDLE, SUCH AS A MEDIAN.

There is no custom code to display.
