RCMP in Quesnel are warning the public there will be zero tolerance for drivers that fail to stop for school buses after several near misses.
Police say a school bus dashcam video on Thursday, Dec. 5 in Quesnel shows a driver failing to stop and driving around the students as they had crossed the road.
“There really is no excuse any violators can be providing that would justify receiving a warning for this,” said Cpl. Serge Bruneau of the North District Traffic Services.
“As such, enforcement action will be taken when warranted.”
Failing to stop for a school bus could result in a $368 fine and 3 demerit points.
RCMP urge anyone who witnesses vehicles failing to stop for buses or any other traffic violation to contact them.
