The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Washington State Patrol and two local school districts to conduct a school bus stop paddle violation emphasis.

The purpose of the emphasis, being conducted this week, is to stop drivers who pass school buses in violation of R.C.W. 46.61.370*. Officers will be riding on school buses in order to observe violations and will then radio nearby officers to report the violation so the driver can be stopped and cited.

"There is no more important responsibility society has than to keep our children safe," said Sheriff Steve Mansfield. "I strongly urge drivers to use caution and obey all laws, but especially such an important law which protects our children."

*RCW 46.61.370 states the driver of a vehicle shall stop for a school bus when there is in operation a visual stop signal. The fine for a violation is $394.
