OPERATION SAFE STOP
Operation Safe Stop is aimed at educating the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus is dangerous and illegal. It is a combined effort of law enforcement agencies, school personnel, school bus contractors, traffic safety organizations including local traffic safety boards and the media to drive home this message.
May 2, 2019 is OPERATION SAFE STOP DAY in New York and you are planning to participate this year---which we hope you are!---then it’s time to start notifying folks of your plans!

SAFE STOP HOT SPOT SHEETS
The NYAPT Operation Safe Stop Committee has prepared and we have posted on the NYAPT website a “HOT SPOT” form that members can use to advise local police about locations that have a higher incidence of illegal passing.
We encourage all our members to use the form to track these ‘high passing zones’ and to share them with your police departments in advance of April 27th which is Safe Stop Day. Our police partners are ready and willing to help and to participate in Safe Stop Day---all we need to do is ask them! Your move!

Thank you for your interest in NYAPT and our Education Partner the Cyr Foundation.
