The Oregon State Sheriffs' Association partnered with TGF Productions to produce a public service announcement video highlighting the importance of school bus safety. It reminds drivers to stop when the stop sign and red lights are flashing to allow kids to safely cross the street.
"We are proud to help promote school bus safety. We know many kids ride the bus every day to and from school and we want to make sure they are safe," said Sheriff Craig Roberts, president of the Oregon State Sheriffs' Association.
Oregon elementary school students participated in the public service announcement along with sheriffs from across the state.
While school buses remain one of the safest ways for kids to get to school, accidents can happen. Making sure drivers obey the traffic rules is essential for student safety.
