TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1987 CO UNITY THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Watch for flashing lights and kids Milch Gibenon. CHP When school bus lights are flashing, as In the picture above, drivers must stop to allow children to cross the street safely. By MAUREEN CONNOR-RICE Journal SUff Writer School Bus Safety Week has been declared to be Sept. 21 - 25 by the California High Patrol. The safety of students getting on and off school buses is of vital concern to the CHP, says Captain Dorsey Hoffman of the Ukiah office. School bus drivers throughout the county find drivers passing their buses when the red lights are flashing. The flashing lights mean youngsters are boarding or getting off the bus. The law requires drivers to stop their cars when red lights are flashing and not proceed until they have stopped flashing. Oftentimes, the youngsters crossing in front of the bus cannot be seen by drivers approaching from behind the bus. Ukiah school bus driver Sharon Hoag has had to grab children out of the way as cars whizzed by, ignoring the flashing lights. "An awful lot of people in Ukiah ignore the lights," she commented, "especially on South Dora. They run the lights every day. "I was out on the street crossing the kids, when motorcycles went through the kids, dodging around them," she continued. "A 'lady' bumped into the previous driver (of her route) and told her to get out of the way." Hoag said the children believe it is safe to cross when the driver is in the street. The driver tries to •wait until there is no traffic, but often a car appears after the youngsters have started their often dangerous trek across the street. Sandy Preffer is one of the drivers for Potter Valley schools. She said that most of their red light stops are on Powerhouse Road. "We don't do them on East and West Road anymore because we know people won't stop," she explained. All of the stops on East and West roads are on the righthand side of the road for the students on that side. Another bus travels the opposite direction dropping off students who live on the other side of the street. "You wouldn't believe some of the excuses we get," she added. For instance, "People think that if the driver is out of the bus, they don't have to stop." The penalty for ignoring the flashing lights is stiff, according to the CHP. The first violation carries a $50 - $100 fine; the second, $50 - $250; and if the third violation is within two years, license is suspended for a year, Imperial Savings CDs always seem to . rate a j little higher.!
