The Trumbull Police Department would like to remind motorists to drive slowly and watch for children at bus stops and walking to school. Stay alert and aware on the road.
Watch for school buses! Motorists are required to immediately bring their vehicle to a stop not less than 10 feet from the front when approaching and not less than 10 feet when following a school bus displaying flashing red signal lights. At intersections a vehicle that turns toward a school bus receiving or discharging passengers is prohibited. Motorists may proceed when the bus no longer displays flashing red signal lights.
The fine for passing a standing school bus is $465.00 according to Connecticut General Statute 14-279.
