Ottawa Police Service back to school safety tips for kids and adults

This week and next, children will be returning to school and many will be busing, walking and riding their bikes to their destinations.

The Ottawa Police Service reminds motorists and pedestrians to be aware of the increase of children and youth on city streets.  As school begins, please consider the following safety tips:

Drivers are responsible for stopping in both directions, if on a road without a median, when they see a school bus stopped with its lights flashing. Fines for not obeying this law range from $400 to $2,000 and six demerit points.
