School bus safety

Stop for school buses – It’s the law

Did you know? Most school bus injuries happen as children are boarding or leaving the bus or crossing the street.

The Region of Peel, along with Peel Regional Police and Ontario Provincial Police, is committed to keeping our children and community safe. Please practice safe driving.

You must obey the school bus law on any road, no matter how many lanes or what the speed limit. Be prepared to stop for a school bus at any time, not just within school hours.

Drivers who don't follow the provincial bus safety laws will be fined. First offence penalties can be up to $2000 and six demerit points.
