Bus Stop Parking Safety

Valley Township police officers are on the lookout for parents who park illegally at school bus stops in the Township.  An officer recently observed an individual parking dangerously close to an intersection while waiting for a school bus to arrive.  Contributing to the safety problem are limited visibility and a tight turning radius which are created by illegally parked vehicles. These hazards could cause a problem for vehicles that are approaching stop signs and/or intersections.

To help keep the bus stops in Valley Township as safe as possible, the police department is releasing a reminder for parents to keep a safe distance from intersections while parked at school bus stops. According to Pennsylvania vehicle law, a person may not stand or park a vehicle within 30 feet on the approach to any flashing signal, stop sign, yield sign, or traffic control signal located at the side of a roadway.  Violators could be cited.

Valley Township officers will continue to patrol the school bus stops in the area in an effort to limit risks to children.
