Transportation director, Cal Blacker, said, “We are very excited to work with the THP to produce this PSA to help bring awareness to highway safety in relation to school buses and students.”
The video will feature THP Colonel Tracy Trott and students from Ashland City Elementary. Blacker added that THP officials were pleased with the look and feel of Ashland City Elementary. “Colonel Trott was extremely complimentary of our facilities and cooperation.”
According to officials, the PSA will focus on bus safety for all cars surrounding buses in regular traffic situations. Through this production, the community will be educated on proper procedures when encountering a bus with illuminated caution lights and an executed stop sign.
Plans are being made for the PSA to be shown on local news stations, social media, and prior to movies in local cinemas.
