JUNEAU, WI (WTAQ) - Drivers will have to be more careful on the roads – and not just because kids are going back to school this week.

Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls says farmers are about to begin their harvest season – and that means you’ll see more implement vehicles along with school buses in the countryside.

Nehls asks motorists to be patient when they’re stopped by a school bus or slowed down by a farm tractor.

Drivers must stop for crossing guards who guide youngsters across streets – and motorists must also stop at least 20-feet from the front or the back of a school bus with red flashing lights. If they don’t, they’ll pay fines of $150 to $300-dollars in each instance.

Nehls also says the owners of those vehicles could be left on the hook for those fines – even if they’re not the drivers at the time.
