Be aware the return of yellow school buses

Falls classes at area schools are scheduled to begin in coming weeks. That means hundreds of school buses will be carrying our children and grandchildren to and from their school buildings.

It also means motorists will have to adjust driving habits. The summer months of not exercising an extra measure of caution while buses are on local highways are over.

So, on your way to or from work, remember to keep a sharp eye peeled for those big yellow buses. Obey the law that prohibits passing stopped buses.

Remember, a second or two of inattention can result in a tragedy. Let’s keep the kids safe this year.
