Back to School Traffic Enforcement Campaign Continues
The North Bay Police Service’s traffic enforcement campaign continues every weekday until Friday September 16th, 2016, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. when school-related traffic is at its peak. Police officers will be monitoring and enforcing traffic laws along school bus routes, in community safety zones where speeds are reduced to 40 km per hour and at school crossings where young pedestrians are crossing the road with the help of school crossing guards.

Drivers are reminded that they must STOP for a school bus with its upper red lights flashing and stop arm extended in BOTH directions. (The ONLY EXCEPTION, is if the road is separated by a median. In this scenario, only the driver behind the bus must stop.)
