School Bus Safety in Worcester County

Posted:
OCEAN CITY, Md.- As summer vacation comes to an end, the Ocean City Police Department would like to remind motorists to be cautious while traveling as Worcester County Students return to class September 2. 

Motorists should do their part to keep children safe and be aware of school buses during busy commutes. 

School bus pick-up and drop-off times may vary, however citizens can generally expect to see buses on the road between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. then again between 2:45 p.m. and 4 p.m. Citizens are reminded that all drivers traveling in all lanes on the same side of the highway as a school bus are required to stop when flashing red lights are activated.

"Additional OCPD patrols are continuously assigned to enforce school bus safety each school day," said Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro. "Drivers are reminded to take extra time to look for children at intersections and always stop for a school bus that has activated it's flashing red lights, no matter what lane you're in."

Worcester County parents are also encouraged to remind their students to stay off the street while waiting for the bus to arrive and always wait for the bus driver's signal before crossing in front of the bus.
