Clearfield Police: vehicles not stopping for bus, attempted theft from skills machine


Clearfield, PA – Police in Clearfield got several complaints recently about vehicles that weren’t stopping for school buses.

Remember, if a school bus has its lights flashing and the stop sign out, you must stop in either direction.

Most people know that you must stop and not pass if you are driving behind a bus, but you also need to stop even if you are travelling in the opposite direction on the other side of the road. The only exception to this is in the rare occasion that a bus would stop on a divided highway, then the opposing traffic on the other side of the median would not need to stop.

Clearfield Borough Police also say they’re investigating a case in which a man and woman were seen attempting to remove money from a skills machine.

Police in Clearfield also got reports about juveniles damaging signs at the River Walk. Police arrived and did not locate any damage nor the juveniles.
