State law gives the bus driver the same authority as a teacher in the classroom." said Bennett. Last year, Gilmer County school buses transported approximately 1600 students and logged some 250,000 miles. This took 42,000 gallons of gas. This year's busing budget is $230,000. Eighty per cent of this amount, excluding salaries, is funded by the state. The county was able to purchase, with state money, three new buses for this year. They cost $34,000. In announcing bus service for the school year, Bennett said that to board a bus student will be expected to walk 200 feet out of a curve or off the crest of a hill or from any other obstructed view, for safety reasons. By state law, bus stops for pickup should be at least .2 of a mile apart. Motorist should remember that whenever they see flashing red lights on a school bus it means students are loading or unloading and you must stop. These lights will be activated at least 100 ft. before reaching a stop.
