LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- As school starts in Lawrence County, Ohio, Sheriff Jeff Lawless is warning students and drivers about school bus safety.

Lawless says his office, along with the Buckeye State Sheriff's Association, are coordinating a school bus ride along day for all schools in the county.

Sheriff Lawless says, "It is important for our children to understand the need for proper behavior while riding the bus to school."

According to Lawless, school bus drivers have to concentrate on the road and other drivers, but students also must do their part. "Respect, Responsibility, and Restraint are the new 3 R's to be learned," Lawless said.

Motorists also need to make adjustments while driving. Lawless says they need to slow down and stop while students board and depart from the bus.

Drivers also need to be attentive in school zones and when buses are stopped.

Lawless says deputies only have to take information about a vehicle and later issue a citation for school bus violations.
