The traffic management unit of the Greater Sudbury Police reports it has charge two more vehicle owners with school bus offences over the past 10 days.

The first incident, which is alleged to have occurred in Chelmsford, involved a sedan which was following a school bus and allegedly pulled out and passed the bus at a roadside pickup.

Police say the second incident took place on William Ave. in Sudbury where a pickup truck allegedly disobeyed flashing lights from a school bus.

Police want to warm members of the public that failing to stop for a school bus carries a fine of $490 and the loss of six demerit points upon conviction.

Ontario law permits  police to charge the owner of any offending vehicel if the driver can't be identified.
