The DPS is reminding drivers to watch out for children heading back to school from summer break this week, and to be aware – and slow down – when children are entering and exiting buses. Beginning Sept. 1, drivers who illegally pass school buses will face a fine of$1,250 for a first offense – up from $1,000. A driver convicted of a second offense can have his license suspended for up to six months.
