For the majority of public school students, Monday is the start of a new school year and yellow school buses will once again be rolling on our roadways. Ensuring student safety on our roadways remains a top priority, and motorists in particular are asked to exercise caution when school bus stop arms are engaged and lights are flashing. While we all learned the rules when we received our drivers license about when to stop for a school bus, a little refresher around this time of year is always a good idea.
