PennDOT Urges Traffic Safety During National Back to School Safety Month

​​Montoursville – As a new school year begins across the state, students will be walking, biking or riding the bus to get there. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), urges motorists to avoid distractions, obey the speed limit in school zones, and be on the lookout for students this time of year and always.

Parents and caregivers are reminded to talk to children about traffic and school bus safety. Children who ride a bicycle should wear a bicycle helmet, and anyone who drives or rides in a vehicle should wear a seat belt or be in an appropriate child passenger safety seat.

Data from the Pennsylvania Department of Education shows there were 1,731,588 students enrolled in public schools last year in the state. Additionally, PennDOT data shows over 1.5 million students are transported daily on a school bus in Pennsylvania.

Motorists are reminded Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law states:

• Motorists are to stop at least 10 feet away from school buses that have their red lights flashing and stop arm extended;
• Motorists must stop if they are behind the bus, meeting the bus, or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped;
• Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety;
• If physical barriers such as grassy medians, guide rails, or concrete median barriers separate oncoming traffic from the bus, motorists in opposing lanes may proceed without stopping.

Drivers convicted of violating the School Bus Stopping Law could face a fine of $250, five points on their driving record and a 60-day license suspension.

For more information on school bus, pedestrian or bicycle safety, visit or call 1-800-368-8686.
