SCHOOL BUS SAFETY CAMPAIGN

A campaign targeting drivers who flout the rules when passing stationery school buses is currently underway in Taranaki.

The initiative is the next phase of the “What Are You Missing” road safety strategy which was been on-going since 2014.

The speed limit for safely passing a school bus, in either direction, stopped to let children on or off, is 20kmh.

Drivers could be fined $150 for exceeding 20kmh past a stationery school bus, with the fine increasing to $360 for travelling at 50kmh above the limit and 50 demerit points while drivers who speed at more than 50kmh would automatically have their licence suspended for 28 days and would be summoned to appear in court.

There have been several accidents outside the College this year that could have been avoided had drivers observed the road rules.

Your assistance in observing the 20kmh sped limit would be greatly appreciated.

Phil Gayton
Chairman,
Health & Safety committee
