Spackenkill wants to remind all parents, adults, and driving students that passing a stopped school bus with flashing lights while on school grounds (private road) or roadways is a traffic violation. Every person convicted of the first violation will be punished by a fine of $250 to $400 or by imprisonment for not more than 30 days or by both fine and imprisonment. Additional traffic violations increase both fine and time of imprisonment. Such violation may also result in a five-point penalty on one’s driver’s license. School district grounds are not exempt from these laws. This information is shared in the interest of safety for all students and as a reminder to those who violate the law what passing a stopped school bus with flashing lights can cost in fines and points. We wouldn’t want this to happen to any of our community members.
