Neighbourhood Safety

We have received complaints of drivers passing school buses while stopped with red warning lights flashing. It is illegal for an important reason, to protect child safety, and that also applies when vehicles are approaching from the opposite direction. This issue isn’t unique to Bear Mountain (https://arstechnica.com/cars/2021/01/despite-covid-19-lockdowns-american-roads-are-getting-much-deadlier). Buses are equipped with cameras and to enable the school district to notify the RCMP of incidents, the Goldstream News Gazette just released an article:
