MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles Registrar Rachel Kaprielian today in Lexington joined the RMV Vehicle Safety & Compliance team and local police checking local bus stops as part of Operation Yellow Blitz during National School Bus Safety Week.
Yellow Blitz is an appeal by the RMV, local law enforcement, and school pupil transportation providers to draw attention to the problem of vehicles illegally passing school buses that are picking-up and discharging school pupils.
Those caught illegally passing school buses face a $250 fine for their first offense. A total of 32 citations were issued in participating communities across the state for illegally passing school buses.
In addition, on Monday and Tuesday of School Bus Safety Week the RMV along with its partners at the Department of Public Utilities conducted 145 compliance checks of school buses and school bus operators. The random checks resulted in the discovery of mechanical or safety problems on eight buses and four operators were found without their certifications on-hand.
