On Tuesday, September 6th, students across Ontario will be headed back to school. The Owen Sound Police Service is reminding motorists that the streets and sidewalks will once again be busy with students travelling to and from school.
Students may not always be focusing on traffic safety and motorists are encouraged to slow down and be extra cautious.
Drivers are also reminded that school buses and crossing guards will be back on our roadways. Remain alert and be prepared to make unanticipated stops. Failing to stop for a crossing guard displaying a portable stop sign carries a fine of $180.00 and three demerit points. (The fine doubles if in a designated “Community Safety Zone”). Passing a school bus with red lights activated carries a fine of $490.00 and six demerit points.
