Be aware of school buses 

Whistler drivers are being asked to be more aware of school buses, as RCMP have received complaints that many motorists aren’t stopping for the buses during their morning commute.

In a press release issued Wednesday, Whistler RCMP point out that children are put at risk every time drivers decide to break this law.

Police have spoken with a number of drivers about this problem, and say many simply don’t realize that when a school bus has a “STOP” light flashing, they have to stop completely behind the bus.

Buses will start flashing an amber light, indicating that drivers should prepare to stop, before they turn on the red STOP light.

Anyone who breaks this law can expect a fine of $167.
