Possible federal bus stop safety law increasing penalties significantly:According to WSB TV, “a petition on WhiteHouse.gov is calling for lawmakers to create a federal bus stop safety law. This comes in the wake of several children being killed recently in crashes at or near a school bus stops.”
The petition on WhiteHouse.gov is calling for severe penalties penalties like jail time and a 90 day suspension of driver’s license for people who refuse to stop for school buses.
Georgia code 40 –6–163, forbids passing a school bus with its stop signs extend and it’s red lights blinking. The blinking red lights and the stop signs are extended every time a school bus stops to load or unload children.
If you are found guilty of violating GA Code 40-6-163 you will be fined $400.
All drivers are reminded to drive safely and within the speed limit at all times and especially when in school zones.
Please don’t put our children at additional risk.
This plea for safe driving comes from the Alpharetta, Georgia traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller.
