Operation Safe Stop to be Conducted Thursday, April 22

On Thursday, April 22, school transportation departments will work cooperatively with local, county and state law enforcement agencies for Operation Safe Stop.

Operation Safe Stop is a statewide initiative that aims to both educate the public and enforce the law that it is illegal to pass a stopped school bus with its stop sign out and red lights flashing. According to the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, an estimated 50,000 motor vehicles illegally pass school busses in New York State every day.

As part of Operation Safe Stop, local law enforcement vehicles will be following school buses and may be parked outside of schools throughout the Whitesboro Central School District.
