File # 2021-800031

The Cowichan Valley School District has installed cameras on their entire fleet of yellow buses in an effort to increase the safety of the students travelling on them.  Since installing these cameras, the Cowichan Valley School District has been reporting to the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP each instance in which their yellow school buses capture images of vehicles as they pass the bus while it is stopped, dropping students off.  The number of reports continues to be high and puts our students at risk.

Have you recently passed a stopped yellow school bus?  Maybe expect a visit from your friendly neighbourhood police officer.....these violation tickets can be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle photographed by the bus camera, months after the offence took place.

Cpl. Cari Lougheed said, "Our students have one month of school left this year, lets do our part to keep them safe as they travel to and from our schools.  If a school bus is stopped don't pass it."
