September is one of the warmest months in the Southern United States
The beginning of the school year looms notes State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129) and motorists are reminded to use additional caution on roadways with school buses and other school transportation vehicles soon taking to the road.
Pennsylvania law requires that motorists stop at least 10 feet away from school buses when their red lights are flashing and their stop arm is extended. Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety. Do not proceed until all the children have reached a place of safety.
Penalties for failure to obey school bus safety laws can result in a $250 fine, five points on a driving record and a 60-day license suspension.
Parents are reminded to ensure that their children are at the bus stop early to avoid rushing. Students should stay where the bus driver can see them while boarding or exiting the bus.

Thank you old media. That was sarcasm.
OpenPaGov.org estimates that Pennsylvania in 2012-13 spent $15,341 per pupil.
