Bus stop safety

As we finish off our back to school series, we want to remind drivers that in addition to watching for pedestrians and bicycles around town, please be alert for the local bus stops throughout the area.  Be aware that Colorado Revised Statute 42-4-1903 states that vehicle drivers must stop at least 20 feet behind a bus that has their lights and/or sign activated.  Vehicles can't proceed past the bus until all the safety signs and lights are extinguished.
