Motorists Reminded to Watch out for Students

(Jefferson County) Students across Missouri are preparing to begin their 2021-2022 school year.

Corporal Juston Wheetley with the Missouri State Highway Patrol reminds drivers to be vigilant always, but especially near school zones.

Before the pandemic, school bus stop-arm violations were drastically up in 2019.

In 2020, no one was killed in traffic crashes involving school buses; however, 152 people were injured.

In Missouri last year, 453 traffic crashes involved school buses.

Most school districts throughout the region will begin the new school year next week.
