National Illegal Passing Survey
MN will be participating in the National Illegal Passing Survey on April 13th, 2022 (If your school is off that day please use April 20th as the alternate). Please have your district’s school bus operators observe and report any instances of motorists illegally passing their school buses, using the attached form. Even drivers who have no “pass-by’s” on the day of the survey should turn in the form so that we can get accurate data on how many pass-by’s occur per day per bus.
Please instruct drivers to pay particular attention to the instructions and safety precautions. As always, their primary duty is to the safety of their students. Please have your drivers pay particular attention to the bottom of the form where they are instructed to “report only illegal passes that occur while the bus driver is stopped with red warning lights flashing and stop arm(s) deployed in full compliance with our state training and procedures.”
We are asking that each district or operator delegate one person to collect the stats for your operation and submit the results using the following link no later than April 30th, 2020;
Thank you for your help with this important initiative.
