FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Education wants motorists to remember to look for schoolchildren as they return to the classroom this month.

The agency reminds drivers to watch for students walking or biking to school, waiting for the bus or exiting the bus.

The National Transportation Safety Administration also says drivers should be aware of school bus laws. In Kentucky, it’s illegal to pass a stopped school bus in either direction on a two-lane road if the bus warning lights are on. Bus drivers use flashing signal lights to alert motorists of pending actions.

The Education Department also says parents should talk to their children about bus safety.
