III. Stopping-for-school-buses law
 
Reporting a school bus being passed
 

In Ontario, school-bus drivers and other witnesses can report vehicles that have illegally passed a school bus. You can report a vehicle that doesn't stop properly for a school bus to police immediately by calling 911. You may also go to a police station to make a report. You may be required at a later date to attend court to provide evidence of what happened. The MTO Web Site has a summary of the information the police will ask you for about the incident. This information may also be provided to a person charged with an offence so that he or she has a summary of what you will say in court. This information should be provided to your local police station as soon after the incident as possible.
