Driving Complaint

On November 21, 2019, An officer attended Todd Lane and Wayne Street for a report of an ongoing issue with vehicles not stopping for school buses with their lights flashing and stop arm extended. The reporting persons advised that this occurs on a regular basis. The reporting person recorded a video of today’s incident on their mobile phone. The concern is for the children and LaSalle Police are asking ALL motorists to be especially cautious when driving at times when children are being transported to and from schools on school buses. Officers will be in the area monitoring the situation. Anyone caught disobeying the flashing lights and stop arm of a school bus may face a fine totaling $490.00 and 6 demerit points. You could seriously injure or kill a person by proceeding through a bus with its flashers activated and stop arm extended. This is completely preventable as long as you do your part and pay attention.
