The Rock County Sheriff's Office is issuing warnings for drivers about the potential safety hazards surrounding school buses.


According to the National Coalition for School Bus Safety, 17,000 children are annually injured nationwide in school bus related traffic accidents. The Sheriff's Office reminds drivers to stop at least 20 feet from the bus. All lanes of traffic must stop for the bus unless the highway is divided by a median. No vehicle may proceed until the bus turns off its flashing red warning lights.
