School Bus Safety
Just a reminder to parents & drivers approaching a School Bus that is stopped and displaying flashing red lights & stop signs. There has been an increase in drivers passing stopped PISD school buses when the buses have their red lights flashing & their stop sign activated while loading/unloading our students. Drivers MUST stop in both directions when approaching a school bus with its lights & stop sign activated. This is a violation of Texas traffic law and can result in a citation being issued. Fines for 1st Offense are $500 to $1250. Fines for 2nd and subsequent offenses are $1000 to $2000 plus court costs. In addition, the Court may order the Drivers License of a person convicted of a 2nd or subsequent offense be suspended for no longer than 6 mos. PLEASE pay attention and always stop when you see flashing red lights & stop sign activated on any school bus! If you see a violation, please report it to PISD at 806-537-3568.
Let's all work together to keep our PISD students safe!
