The following is from the Arlington Police Department.
The Arlington Police Department will participate in “Operation Yellow Blitz” on Wednesday, Oct. 24.
Operation Yellow Blitz is an appeal by MassDOT and the Registry of Motor Vehicles in conjunction with local law enforcement to draw attention to the national problem of vehicles driving past school buses that are picking up and discharging school pupils.
The Arlington Police Department will be out specifically looking for motorists that do not stop for school buses that are displaying red flashing lights and stop signs. If you are observed not stopping for a school bus, you could be issued a citation under Mass General Law Chaper 90 Section 14, which carries a fine of $250.
The Arlington Police Department is committed to keeping our children safe.
