School Bus Safety
Charlottetown Police Services continue to remain active with their School Bus initiative. Over the month of March, SRO (School Resource Officers) will periodically travel on School Buses within the Charlottetown City limits on their regular routes in conjunction with Charlottetown Police Traffic Enforcement Officers in an effort to observe motorists passing School Buses while red lights are flashing.
Cst MACKAY participated in a School Bus ride along on March 1st resulting in one female driver being charged under section 202(1) of the HTA (Highway Traffic Act) – failing to stop for school buses when flashing red lights are displayed. This is the seventh such charge laid in 2019 by Charlottetown Police Services.
