New York police officers will participate in Operation Safe Stop Day today, a statewide effort to crackdown on drivers who pass school buses illegally. Police officers will ride on school buses and in marked and unmarked patrol units on bus routes that are found to have to a high number of illegal passing complaints. Drivers who pass school buses illegally face 5 points on their license and fines of anywhere from $250 – $400. Remember, you must always stop for a bus that is flashing its red lights, even if it is on the other side of a divided or multi-lane highway. If you receive a traffic ticket for illegally passing a school bus or for any other reason, please contact us at 212-227-9008 or email@example.com.
