With school starting, Chickasaw County Sheriff and Iowa State Patrol reminds public not to pass buses with lights flashing

Schools back – so are school buses – and so are the huge consequences for passing a school bus when its lights are flashing red or orange. Iowa State Patrol Officer Tom Williams says a first conviction of this school bus law can rack up to $675 in fines, 30 days in jail, and 30 days suspension of a driver’s license.


Williams asks drivers to cut the distractions and stay vigilant while driving.


The Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Facebook page doubled-down on this message:

“would like to remind everyone to use caution and slow down and stop when approaching a school bus from EITHER direction when it has its amber or red lights activated. Also use caution when seeing children crossing the street on their way to and from school.”
