Assistance Requested Regarding Stopped School Buses

Over the last few years, there seems to have been an increase of incidents of vehicles passing school buses illegally. In order to address this concern, we are asking for your assistance to avoid this happening, and more importantly to avoid any students being harmed when they board or exit a school bus.

In order to protect the safety of our students, Knoxville CUSD #202 bus drivers activate the 8-way flashing system in accordance with State Law in advance of the stop arm being extended to alert other drivers of this potentially dangerous situation. And in order to continue protecting our students, we will report any incidents of drivers passing school buses illegally. This is an action we would like to avoid, but it is the only course of action we can take to protect our students under these circumstances. The best advice we can give drivers is to not pass a school bus if the 8-way flashers are activated and/or the stop arm has been extended.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Any questions can be directed to the Knoxville CUSD #202 Transportation Department at 289-4012.
