Channel 11 cameras were rolling Thursday morning as drivers ignored the bus stop arm as students tried to cross the street.
It happened on Frankstown Road and Wilkinsburg Avenue in Pittsburgh’s East Hills community.
Safety officials told Channel 11’s Robin Taylor if you’re caught not sharing the roads with buses, you could face a hefty fine or loss of your license.
Thursday, a bus driver honked the horn at drivers as they passed the bus’ extended stop arm. This all happened as a crossing guard was attempting to help students cross the street.
Now that school is back in session, officials say what we witnessed this morning should serve as a warning for all drivers. They could face tough penalties for ignoring school bus warnings.
“School bus offenses are very serious. You can lose your license for 60 days it’s a $250 fine and 5 points against your driver's license," said Terri Anthony, safety adviser with AAA.
Remember, you must stop for a school bus on both sides when a stop arm extended, unless it’s a divided street or highway.
You must also stop at least 10 feet away from the school bus.
