GENESEO — On Monday morning a driver was ticketed for passing a school bus while picking up children on their way to school.
In a video released by the Village of Geneseo Police Department you can see the truck passing the school bus with lights flashing and moments later kids running into the bus.
The penalty falls under traffic law section 1174.a, passing a stopped school bus.
“We want to remind motorists to stop when they approach a school bus with their emergency lights on,” said Eric Osganian, Village of Geneseo Police Chief. “We want to keep our children as safe as possible and passing a stopped school bus is dangerous.”
