Bus Notice

The Morristown Police Department has received numerous complaints recently about cars passing school buses in the parking lots of Morristown Elementary and Peoples Academy.   We would like to remind drivers that it is illegal to pass a school bus when the red signal lights are in operation.  At no time is this permissible even if there is room to pass.  The current fine in the state of Vermont is $249 and 5 points on your driver’s license.  Attached is that statute.
