Fines for passing a school bus going up

Fines for drivers passing school buses with flashing lights in BC are more than doubling.

They’ll be going up to 368 dollars.

The province says the previous fine of 167 dollars was one of the lowest in Canada and not enough to deter drivers.

In BC, between 2009 and 2014, 1,100 violation tickets were issued by police for drivers that failed to stop for a school bus.
To date, no child has died while getting on or off a school bus, but 14 children have been injured.
