Operation Safe Stop

Operation Safe Stop is a proactive approach to educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal. Law enforcement agencies, school transportation providers, pupil transportation associations and PennDOT have combined their efforts to raise public awareness about the potential consequences of these traffic violations and reduce the occurrence of illegal school bus passes. Over the past 25 years PennDOT, along with law enforcement agencies and pupil transportation associations, have worked together to conduct Operation Safe Stop. On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, the 26th Annual Operation Safe Stop will take place.
