[ARCHIVED] PRESCOTT VALLEY POLICE DEPARTMENT URGES DRIVERS TO USE CAUTION AS CHILDREN RETURN TO SCHOOL

PD News Release_IG

On Monday, August 2,  the streets of Prescott Valley will be busy with students walking to bus stops and schools. The Prescott Valley Police Department is urging drivers to be aware of the school year starting and to allow themselves more time to get to their destinations. Traffic flows will be impacted by buses that are stopped to pick up or drop off students. 

Per State law, all drivers must stop for school buses that are stopped with warning lights displayed.  The penalties for passing a stationary school bus with warning lights on are severe. The first offense is a $250 fine.  The second offense is a $750 fine with a suspension of your driver’s license.   

We ask drivers to please be especially cautious of students walking in the roadway in areas that do not have sidewalks.  It is everyone’s responsibility to keep our students safe.  Citizens are urged to report motorists that refuse to stop for the school buses. 

Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies.  You may also contact Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232. 

If you see something, please say something.
