Did you know....
In the City of Lethbridge, there is a bylaw prohibiting school buses from using their stop lights and stop arms, but drivers are still urged by LPS to use caution when navigating around buses that are stopped. I will be presenting this to the City, to change this. Safety for our children are number one!

This needs to change. We need more to ensure our children's safety.  School busses are equipped with these for a reason, and should be used as a tool to better the safety of our children. Think that LPS will have a officer follow every school bus around to keep an eye on other drivers around it? I think not. Therefore this needs to change.

What kind of a bylaw prohibits buses from using safety devices for children entering and disembarking a bus? Wake up council. A lot of Lethbridge drivers do not slow down around busses (city or school), in school or playground zones. I am right beside a Lethbridge school and a playground zone, and I see so many race by on their phones and not paying attention. I have been watching this for the last 7+ years in Lethbridge, with a child of my own.

What if it was your kid after school that got hit getting off the school bus? I bet it would upset drivers if they hit a child a lot more. Let's not let it happen in the first place.

Requested clarification from the Lethbridge City Police, but with no response. Section 1001-1601? 0r Section 501-1613? I do not see it anywhere in the City of Lethbridge traffic bylaws.
