Craig Rice and Daughter Join County Officials in Urging Drivers to Stop for School Buses
It was two years ago, County Councilmember and Germantown resident Craig Rice had dropped his then third-grade daughter off at the bus stop at Richter Farm Road and Rockingham Road in Germantown. As Caelyn Rice ran toward the bus something made her stop, it was a white sedan, and it was moving fast — too fast. It flew past the stopped school bus and would have hit young Caelyn had she not been paying attention.
“As I dropped Caelyn off at her bus stop,” said Rice, “a car passed through the school bus stop arm and almost hit her. Fortunately, she was able to remember to make sure there you stop and look both ways, even when the school bus arm out and lights are activated. As a parent, I certainly understand what is at stake. This is about our safety.”
