Last week, Suffolk County and BusPatrol celebrated the launch of Stop4MyBus, an educational initiative designed to raise awareness about school bus safety and empower stakeholders to advocate for meaningful change within their community. Flanked by law enforcement and school district officials at the Middle Country Central School District’s Centereach High School, the new initiative was timed around back to school to further educate the public on the rules of the road as students return to the classroom on their first week back from summer break.
Developed in partnership with the Suffolk County School Bus Safety Committee, Stop4MyBus will empower parents, students, and policymakers with essential tools and resources to foster responsible driver behavior and strengthen stop-arm enforcement legislation.

We’re not alone in this endeavor. Suffolk County law enforcement is standing with us to ensure school bus safety remains a top priority. The Suffolk County Police Department and Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office have announced enhanced patrols and continued enforcement related to school bus safety. The Suffolk County PBA has also partnered with us to position billboards on high-traffic roadways. These billboards will serve as reminders to stop for the bus, creating an added layer of safety and awareness for all drivers.
