The Yorkville Police Department would like to remind drivers that on Illinois roads with four lanes or more, with traffic in both directions, vehicles traveling in the opposite direction of a stopped school bus need not stop. Motorists may proceed after stopping for a bus if one of the following occurs: the bus resumes motion, the bus driver signals the motorist to proceed, or the flashing lights are turned off and the stop arm signal is no longer extended. There has been an increase in complaints about vehicles stopping when they do not need to, especially in the area of Bridge St. (Route 47) near Walnut St. If you have any questions or concerns you may contact the Yorkville Police Department at (630) 553-4340.
