Police-statueNow that the 2011-2012 school year is upon us, it is important for drivers of motor vehicles to be aware of the school bus and reduced speed in a school zone laws. 

According to Minnesota Traffic Law 169.14 Sub 5a:

"School speed limits shall be in effect when children are present, going to or leaving school during opening or closing hours or during school recess periods."

School zone means that section of a street or highway which abuts the grounds of a school where children have access to the street or highway from the school property or where an established school crossing is located provided the school advance sign prescribed

  • The school speed zone for Rogers High School and Rogers Middle School is 35 mph.
  • The school speed zone for Rogers Elementary School is 20 mph.
  • The school speed zone for Hassan Elementary School is 20 mph.

School Bus Safety – Duties of Other Drivers

According to Minnesota Traffic Law 169.444:

"When a school bus is stopped on a street or highway and is displaying an extended stop-signal arm and flashing red lights, the driver of a vehicle approaching the bus shall stop the vehicle at least 20 feet away from the bus. The vehicle driver shall not allow the vehicle to move until the school bus stop-signal arm is retracted and the red lights are no longer flashing.

No person may pass or attempt to pass a school bus in a motor vehicle on the right-hand, passenger-door side of the bus when the school bus is displaying the pre-warning flashing amber signals."

Violation of the School Bus law is a misdemeanor offense.

Please help the Rogers Police Department in ensuring the safety of our children when going to, while at and returning from school. If you have any further questions regarding these laws please contact the Rogers Police Department at 763-428-3450.
