School Bus Stop Ahead Sign
The Government of Saskatchewan may provide School Bus Stop Ahead signs for eligible locations along provincial highways.
The School Bus Stop Ahead sign may be used in advance of locations where:
- The sight distance is inadequate, or
- Locations of a transfer point on the highway where two or more buses stop to load or unload.
Requests for signs are to be forwarded to the local school division. They will review the request, fill out an application form, and apply by e-mail or regular mail to the coordinates provided with the application form below.
Applications for signs on roads that are not highways (such as grid roads or community streets) should be forwarded to the school division. They can send the application to the rural municipality or urban municipality.
The integrity of the School Bus Stop Ahead sign may be jeopardized if overused or used indiscriminately. The consequences may be that the sign will lose its effectiveness and be ignored in a critical situation. Uniform application throughout the province is important to maintain drivers' respect.
You can find specific information on school bus ahead signs in the policy below.
