[ARCHIVED] October 18-22: 2021 National School Bus Safety Week

Operation-Safe-Stop

Held during the third full week of October each year, National School Bus Safety Week is an active and evolving public education program and an excellent way for parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators, and other interested parties – to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety. Designed to promote school bus safety, school districts throughout the country observe School Bus Safety Week. 

Also this week, PennDOT will commence with Operation Safe Stop on Wednesday, October 20. Operation Safe Stop is a statewide campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of illegally passing a school bus while children are loading or exiting. In honor of Operation Safe Stop, Radnor Township School District and Radnor Police join forces this week to bring awareness to school bus safety. On Wednesday, RPD will provide selective enforcement in areas where violation are known to occur throughout the Township. 


Helpful Tips for Practicing Bus Safety:

  • In Pennsylvania, drivers MUST STOP at least 10 feet away from school buses that have their red lights flashing and stop arm extended. 
  • Motorists must stop when they are behind the bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped.
  • Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety.
  • Pay Attention. Be Nice. Drive Safely.
