Most people do not realize what a big deal it is to disrupt a school bus. I’m sure this woman didn’t. In Chesterfield, VA a mother was convicted of disorderly conduct for blocking a school bus with her car and yelling at the driver.
She was sentenced to 12 months in jail, has to pay a $1,000.00 fine, and is not allowed within 500 feet of either a parked school bus or a school for the next three years! Being disruptive outside of the bus got this woman into big trouble. Parents, be aware of your actions around a school bus; there are children there, and they are watching your examples.
Students, you can also get into serious trouble on the bus. Sure, we have all seen write-ups and referrals, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Disrupting the bus driver is against the law, and you could be charged for it. Just remember that when you’re riding: be cool and follow the rules.
