Increased Patrols For Start Of School

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Schools across Gallatin County are back in session starting Wednesday.

That means you will see school buses on the roads during your drive to and from work.

The Bozeman Police Department said drivers should watch for school buses, especially when they are coming to a stop with their stop arms out.

They say they will be patrolling around school buses this week.     

 "It's just a good reminder kids are back and we've got to be paying attention," said Rick Musson, Bozeman Police Department.  "It is more than just the 15 mph, just because it is a number. It is you've got to be driving, and paying attention and driving slow enough to where a kid does step out you have enough time to stop."

Officers will also be patrolling school zones heavily.

Most school zones in Bozeman are 15 or 20 miles per hour.
