AVON LAKE, Ohio – Avon Lake City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that increases penalties for illegally passing a stopped school bus during its meeting Monday night.

The ordinance makes the violations a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail. It also increases the potential fine from $500 to $750.

Last week, council postponed a vote on the measure after a resident challenged its constitutionality under Ohio law.

The city’s law director reviewed the proposal and presented that review to council before a vote.
