School Bus Safety

Avoid Harm, Obey the Stop Arm. This is School bus safety week and a Halifax-based group is launching an awareness campaign in Bridgewater. Members of Safety Services Nova Scotia are at the South Shore Regional School Board bus garage on St. Phillips Street. This hour, they are doing a tour of the garage where they are explaining the twice-a-year inspection process. Then a police checkpoint will be set up to hand out safety information to drivers. They will be handed a card that explains the penalties for passing a school bus.
