The Provincial Traffic Safety Act states that if you fail to stop 5 metres from the front or rear of a school bus that has its lights and stop arm in operation it is a $360 fine plus demerit points on your licence from SGI.

Yorkton Community Safety Officers (CSO's) are enforcing this for the protection of the students getting on and off school buses. Drivers are not permitted to proceed until the stop arm and lights are deactivated.
