Raise fines for passing school buses in Newfoundland
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
As a concerned parent and community member, I am starting this Petition to call for stricter punishments for illegally passing school buses in our province. It becoming all to common to see and hear people talking about seeing a vehicle passing a school bus while it is stopped. Our current laws are proving to be ineffective. Some people are no where near alert enough when the lights on a school bus are flashing and the stop arm extended. Passing a school bus in Newfoundland should be on par with PEI. Resulting in 12 demerit points and driver's licence suspension for three months, plus a $5,000 fine. Our Highway Traffic Act also needs to be changed to allow bus drivers to stop on an angle as an extra preventative measure.
Our children are our future and we need to make change to help protect them. Help support by signing. Let our voices be heard.
