Bus driver filmed running stop sign

A bus driver for the Whitehall Central School District was caught by a parent committing a number of traffic infractions.
Whitehall school parent, Rick Armitage caught the school district’s bus No. 86 committing multiple traffic violations in just a brief time following the bus. Armitage caught the violations on film, with the use of his dashboard camera, which he uses to record his driving in the event of an accident.
It all started when the bus completely neglected a stop sign at the corner of Saunders and Williams streets. Armitage, who was stopped at the intersection, looked on as the bus took a right turn without hesitation.
As Armitage continued to follow the bus, the driver took a left turn without using a turn signal. At this point, Armitage continued to head straight while the bus turned left, thus making these the only known violations.
Superintendent Elizabeth Legault said that she will speak with the bus driver and that the district is taking the necessary precautions.
“In light of the recent video we received from a concerned parent and community member we have taken the necessary steps to ensure the utmost safety of our students.” Leagult said in a statement, “The Whitehall Central School District does not condone any behavior which could result in the harm or injury of our students. We have handled this situation and will move forward to continue to provide safe and reliable drivers and transportation for the student body of the Whitehall Central School District.”
