School bus company reports drivers passing stopped buses in New Fairfield school campus

A number of drivers have reportedly passed stopped school buses on the New Fairfield school campus. The Resident Trooper's Office received multiple complaints from the First Student bus company and notes that inside the campus, the same laws apply for passing a stopped school bus with red lights flashing. 

Any driver forced into the bus lane because of construction, cannot pass a stopped bus with its red lights flashing. There is a physical barrier between the outer bus lane and inner lane for parent pick up and drivers there are lawfully permitted to pass a stopped school bus. The Resident Trooper's Office say the issue is more frequent with Consolidated Early Learning Center drop off and pick up.

The SRO will be available today for parents with questions.
