The 23rd Annual Operation Safe Stop to Occur this Wednesday, October 23rd
On Wednesday, Oct. 23rd, Abington School District, in partnership with the Abington Township Police Department, will participate in the 23rd annual Operation Safe Stop, an initiative conducted in communities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as part of National School Bus Safety Week, which runs Oct. 21-25. Operation Safe Stop, organized by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, is a public awareness and enforcement effort to educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal. Each year, through Operation Safe Stop, law enforcement agencies, school transportation providers, pupil transportation associations and PennDOT have combined their efforts to raise public awareness about the potential consequences and reduce the occurrence of illegal school bus passes.
