Classes have only been back in session a couple weeks in Thomas County, and already there have been six instances of drivers running through school bus stop signs.
Thomas County Transportation Coordinator Robert Young says the drivers cited could have been hurting a lot more than their wallets.
Says Young, "We've had people go around school buses with a stop sign, we've had people pass oncoming school buses with the stop sign out. It's very dangerous, children can get hurt."
Now that buses and daily drivers have to share the road again, Young says it's important to remember basic safety.
He says when a bus is stopped, the best thing to do is hit the brakes.
Young explains, "Be very cautious. Slow to your slowest speed. When you see the stop sign out, make sure you're stopped, make sure all the kids are across."
Young says no Thomas County students have been injured in bus-related accidents, but two students were injured in Georgia last year at a bus stop.
The wheels on the bus may go 'round and 'round, but when that bus stops, you'd better slow down.
