A public education campaign on safety around school buses is in the works, thanks to a parent who spoke up at a city committee meeting.
Beatriz Fernandez says that in some other cities in the country, when a school bus is dropping a child off, there are signals that require vehicles behind it to stop.
But here in Grande Prairie, that’s not the case.
“It’s only the amber ones that mean that traffic can slow down, but they don’t have to stop, and more and more parents started to be concerned.”
Fernandez says she is satisfied with the City’s idea of working with partners to create education on school bus safety for children and drivers.
