School-related reminders for area drivers from police

Students are back in school and city police have some reminders for motorists.  

Along with stopping for school buses, police say there are pedestrians and community safety zones to be mindful of, too. 

The North Bay Police Service says speed limits are lower in community safety zones and fines are increased.  

Over 70 charges were laid during last September’s city police back-to-school safety initiative, including 65 for speeding.

Three of the charges were for disobeying a school bus stop arm.

Police say if you do see someone driving dangerously in a community safety zone or not stopping for a school bus, contact the North Bay Police by calling 9-1-1 or by calling their non-emergency line at 705-472-1234.

Try to remember the following information, if you can, as it will help Police in finding the offender:

  • The date and time of the incident
  • The vehicle’s make, model, colour and licence plate number
  • Identifying information about the driver
  • The size of the school bus
