Local police ask that people please remember to drive safely around school buses.
Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts says the 10 feet surrounding the bus is where a child is in the most danger of being hit and asks people to stop before that point.
It is also illegal to pass a stopped school bus when its lights are flashing.
Passing illegally can earn drivers a first time offense of $250-$400 and 5 points on a drivers license. 30 days in jail is also possible.
