“Over the past month, we have experienced an increase in crashes involving school buses,” Chief Greg Meyer told TLS. “We are fortunate that no injuries have been reported. As a result, I have instructed my Traffic/Safety Unit to review all crashes involving school buses to determine what steps can be taken to prevent such crashes.”
The traffic unit will also be conducting meetings with the local bus companies to discuss complaints and concerns.
“We take this matter extremely serious as parents entrust both the bus drivers and police to keep them safe,” Meyer said. “We are committed to addressing this ongoing issue and we are open to suggestions from all of our residents. Your concerns in regards to this matter can be sent to [email protected].”
