Tulsa community members want drivers to prioritize safety around school buses.
Tulsa Public Schools drivers, leaders with the American Federation of Teachers, Mayor GT Bynum and others came together to announce the "Stop for the Bus campaign.
The campaign shares this reminder: Oklahoma law requires drivers to stop when they approach a bus with flashing red lights or an extended stop sign. They do not have to stop for a school bus if it is on a different roadway or if the bus is stopped in a loading zone by a controlled-access highway where pedestrians are not allowed to cross.
The groups say infractions of these laws became a national problem, with more than 75,000 vehicles per day passing school buses illegally.
