Improper Passing of a School Bus
Contact Our Aurora Criminal Defense Attorneys for Skilled Representation
The charge of “improper passing of a school bus” is considered a very serious traffic offense that will trigger a mandatory suspension of your driver’s license upon conviction. Unlike other traffic offenses, you cannot receive court supervision for improperly passing a school bus. The public policy behind this severe penalty is to protect the health and safety of school children. While the vast majority of people do not intend to cause harm, sometimes mistakes do happen. The prosecutors in your case are not required to prove "intent", but are merely required to prove that you improperly passed a school bus. The possibility of having your driver's license automatically suspended upon conviction makes this one of the more serious traffic violations.
