Monticello Schools address illegal passing of school buses

Posted: Updated:

MONTICELLO (Monticello Live) - In an effort to ensure the safety of its students while buses are loading or unloading, the Monticello School District Tuesday released a copy of laws on passing school buses.

Danny Lloyd, transportation director for the Monticello School District, said in a press release that they are working with the Monticello Police Department and Drew County Sheriff's Office to curb violations. Both organizations will be making special efforts to find violators of these laws.

One of Monticello's most troubled areas is Highway 425. Oncoming traffic is not required to stop on multilane highways that are divided by a parkway or dividing strip of 20 ft. or more. This does not pertain to any area in Drew County. All oncoming traffic should stop as well as traffic following the bus.
