Charges filed against bus company, driver in Lakewood bus incident

“The Lakewood Police Department would like to announce that charges have been filed in connection with the February 14th incident in which a young student was almost struck while attempting to cross the street in front of the school bus that had just dropped him off,” Lakewood Police Captain Greg Staffordsmith said.

An investigation conducted by Officer Alexander Guzman, with the assistance of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, resulted in the issuance of several motor vehicle summonses to the business in which the school bus was registered to, as well as the operator of the bus, for the Missing Safety Equipment. In addition, several citations were issued by NJMVC for the Failure to Maintain Records.

Both the Owner and the Operator are expected to be in Court in early March.

  1. I’ve been behind busses that don’t even signal he yellow flashing lights – rather they go straight to red.
    It’s hard to know if the issue is with people passing busses with Ted lights or is the danger being caused by some bus drivers.
    I hope this will be a lesson to all.

    Sad it had to come to this though.

  2. I see everyday how cars want to wisk past red flashing lights. Sometimes through shoulders. My child was almost hit because of a car. Nothing to do with the bus drivers. Cars most of the time don’t want to stop.STOP BLAMING DRIVERS.MOST OF TIME IT’S THE CARS. I WAIT FOR MY CHILDREN BUSES.I SEE WHAT’S GOING ON. STOP PLAYING BLAME GAME. IF EVERYONE WILL JUST LOOK AT THEMSELVES WHAT THEY NEED TO FIX IT WILL BE A SAFER PLACE TO BE. LESS ACCIDENTS AND PROBLEMS.
