RCJTC Says All Buses Are Up and Running for First Day of School

Today’s the big day, students at English schools head back to class, joining French students who went back to school last week.

An influx of school buses and youth will be out on the roads and drivers are being asked to be more alert and drive with extra care. 

Motorists are also being reminded that if a school bus is stopped with lights flashing and their stop sign out, it is illegal to pass. Even on Hwy 17 all traffic needs to come to a stop.

Drivers are also obligated to wait for children crossing the road at crosswalks to be completely off the road before proceeding
