Sheriff: Passing School Bus With Stop Arm Out Will Result in License Suspension

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Marion County Sheriff Jerry DeVore is issuing a warning to motorists.  

If you pass a school bus with its stop arm out loading or unloading students on a two lane road or highway it is against the law and you will get a ticket.  DeVore says state law treats the tickets as a serious offense and requires a three month license suspension upon conviction.  

The sheriff reports the problem of motorists not stopping for busses has become an issue for Raccoon Grade School busses traveling Route 161.  DeVore says not stopping puts children in danger who could be crossing the street when getting on or off the bus.
