Sheriff Tim Howard reminds us that schools are open this week across Western NY

Williamsville, NY - Just a reminder - Schools are opening their doors this week - so please be careful of our precious cargo onboard school buses. Please slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits. State law requires you to stop at least 20 feet from the front or rear of a school bus when red lights are flashing. And remember: it's 5 points on your license if you get caught illegally passing a school bus and fines could be in the $400.00 range. Again, be alert and ready to stop as our kids and grandkids deserve nothing less.
