Tuesday is the first day of school for many in the area and that means many drivers need to show some extra patience as school buses hit the road.
The Broome County Sheriff's Office will have patrols on the road to make sure people are stopping when buses are picking up and dropping off. Not stopping can be dangerous and lead to a $250 fine.
"Usually before the red lights go on school buses will have their yellow caution lights come on to advise they're going to make a stop so people can start slowing down way ahead of time. If they don't, instead of stopping for those red lights, they'll be stopping for these (police) lights," said Broome County Sheriff David Harder.
Harder says on a four-lane road traffic on both sides need to stop for a school bus with it's lights on unless there is a divider between both sides of the highway.
