School Buses

The Thibodaux Police Department would like to share a safety concern with the citizens of the City Of Thibodaux. Drivers should be aware and adhere to laws that pertain to school buses when they are in full control of a traffic lane, when receiving and discharging children. Our children are precious to us. Why take the chance of possibly injuring a child by neglecting to follow the law, Revised Statute 32:80 “Overtaking and Passing School Buses”. The law states that the driver of a vehicle meeting a school bus shall stop their vehicle not less than thirty feet from the school bus before reaching the school bus when there are visual signals in operation. The driver of a vehicle shall not proceed until the school bus resumes motion or the visual signals are no longer activated.

Remember, it is our responsibly as drivers to do our part in making sure our children remain safe when traveling to and from school. Patience, Responsibility, Courtesy and Adherence of the law are a must when a driver meets a school bus.
