Advisory

HPD to participate in Operation Safe Stop, Wednesday, 10/24/2018. Please drive carefully!

Over the past 21 years, PennDOT, along with law enforcement agencies and pupil transportation associations, has conducted Operation Safe Stop. On Wednesday, October 24, 2018, the 22nd Annual Operation Safe Stop will occur. The Hatboro Police Department will be participating.

Operation Safe Stop is a proactive approach to educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal. Law enforcement agencies, school transportation providers, pupil transportation associations, and PennDOT have combined their efforts to raise public awareness about the potential consequences and reduce the occurrence of illegal school bus passes. Police officers across the Commonwealth will be focusing on the enforcement of Pennsylvania's law concerning meeting or overtaking school buses.

The PA Vehicle Code, Section 3345, provides for heavy fines and mandatory license suspensions for those who illegally pass a stopped school bus displaying flashing signals. Please be alert for school buses picking up and discharging students.
