With summer break coming to an end and students returning to school this week, it is important to remember the rules of the road and bus and pedestrian safety procedures. Thanks to AAA Western and Central New York for hosting their annual Schools Open, Drive Carefully kickoff. I was pleased to join my colleagues in government and local law enforcement to remind drivers that you must stop when a school bus has its red lights flashing. Failing to stop is not only a fineable offense, it can cause severe harm to children and students. Please take extra caution, it can save lives!
