Operation Safe Stop Is Today – Stopped School Bus Means That You Stop

If you’re driving around the Albany area, remember to stop when you see a school bus stopped with its red lights flashing- after all, it is the law.

Today is ‘Operation Safe Stop Education And Enforcement Day’. April 18 is the day that was chosen to raise awareness of the law for school bus safety. In a story from YNN, law enforcement will be out in full force, not only in the Albany area, but all over New York State.

According to, “during “Safe Stop”, police officers are on board school buses and in marked and unmarked patrol units on selected bus routes that have a history of illegal passing complaints.”

This is to protect students that are either entering or leaving the bus from getting hit by a passing vehicle. It’s hard to believe that people still will not stop when they see those big yellow school buses with the flashing red lights. Plus most buses now have a stop sign that moves for drivers to see when the bus is stopped.

Unfortunately, I have seen many drivers keep going and pass the stopped buses. Not that it’s an excuse, but perhaps they had something else on their mind. Have you ever seen someone pass a stopped school bus? Let’s keep the kids safe.
