1ST Day of School

Most schools open for the year the day after Labor Day.  Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl says drivers need to be reminded that busses and students will be heading to school.

Sheriff Dahl urges patience.  He says drivers need to be looking out for children who may be in the streets while walking to school or waiting for the bus.  He also reminds drivers that when the bus stop arm is out, drivers in both directions must come to a complete stop, and leave at least 20 feet between vehicles.  Drivers should also treat the orange lights on a bus the same way they would an orange light at an intersection, as a time to prepare to stop.  And, absolutely no passing on the right shoulder.
