With School soon approaching, Sheriff Steven Towns and the Williams County Sheriff’s Office is reminding motorists that school buses and students will be commuting to and from school. Be prepared to stop for stopped school buses loading and unloading students. Motorists approaching a stopped school bus from either direction should stop at least 10 feet back from buses displaying red flashing lights and an extended stop arm. Sheriff Towns advises that anyone caught for violating the law will be cited.
Sheriff Towns suggests that you plan extra time for your commute because of the school buses.
