From the desk of Chief Scott...
Don't pass stopped vehicles at pedestrian crossing lights
When you are driving and see a vehicle stopped at the flashing yellow lights at a school crossing, STOP your vehicle
and do not pass the vehicle in front of you. Some drivers are passing vehicles that are stopped for flashing yellow lights, putting students in danger. If a vehicle is stopped at the yellow flashing
lights, assume that there are children crossing the street. Yellow lights are activated during hours when children are likely to be going to and from school. If
you see the lights flashing, be prepared to stop. If
someone is already stopped in front of you, stop your vehicle behind them. Passing
a vehicle that is stopped at a pedestrian crossing is a very dangerous situation and can result in a citation for the driver
who is passing.
