Schools around the Uintah Basin are back in session and all are invited to make safety on the roads a number one priority.  Last week the Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office offered some important reminders. “Please remember, yellow flashing lights on a school bus means the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children,” shares the Sheriff’s Office. “Drivers should slow down and prepare to stop as well. Red flashing lights and extended stop arms mean the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off the bus. Drivers must STOP and WAIT until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop arms are withdrawn, and the bus begins moving again. Then they can continue driving. Let’s all do our part to keep the kids in our community safe.” It’s also important to stay alert and watch for children walking and riding bikes or scooters as there are times they do not look closely before entering a roadway. Parents and guardians should teach and review road safety with their kids at the start of each new school year.
