SARASOTA (WWSB) - All drivers, please read! School is back in session and the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is urging drivers to stop.

Deputies say when you see a bus stop with flashing signal lights on and stop signs out, you must stop!

Students from K-12 are crossing the roadways and if drivers choose to ignore the rules, you will be fined.

Deputies say if a driver doesn’t stop for a school bus it’s a $271 fine and if you pass a bus on the exit side it’s a mandatory court appearance.

Remember drivers, just stop or leave earlier to get to work on time!
