Drivers will now lose license if they illegally pass a school bus


November 30, 2018

P.E.I. drivers will now lose their licence if they illegally pass a school bus, Transportation Minister Paula Biggar announced in the legislature Thursday.

Drivers who ignore this law are not allowed on Island roads.

— Paula Biggar

School bus drivers, parents and others have been calling for more action on illegal passing for years, ramping up efforts after some vehicles nearly hit children getting on and off buses this fall.

Failing to stop for a school bus will also result in 12 demerit points and the suspension of the driver's licence for three months, plus a $5,000 fine.
