School Safety

It's "Back To School" time, and Kid Cop wants to remind everyone to, "Respect the Bus."

When approaching a stopped school bus with activated flashing red lights, Maryland law requires that motorists traveling in the same direction as the bus must stop.  The law also requires that motorists approaching the bus from the opposite direction must stop UNLESS there is a physical barrier, such as a median.

Bicycle Registration

 If your bike is ever stolen, it can be identified and you can prove ownership.
