Passing a school bus causes expensive commute for an Island driver

Milton, Prince Edward Island – On Thursday, November 17, 2016, at 3:50 p.m., Queens District RCMP received a complaint of erratic driver in the Milton Station area during the daily commuter traffic leaving Charlottetown. A car was observed driving past a school bus with flashing red lights activated on Route #2 near Warren Grove Road.

The vehicle was located by RCMP a short time later, and the driver was charged for overtaking school bus when red lights flashing. The minimum penalty for this offence is $1000.00 and 8 demerit points, and the risk to students even more serious.

Queens District RCMP remind drivers to be mindful of school bus and students during the commuting hours, especially as we embark on winter with daylight hours decreasing causing decreased visibility.
