A Jefferson woman has been cited following an investigation into the report of a school bus violation. The Jefferson Police Department reports they were notified by a Greene County School bus driver that a vehicle had passed the stopped bus, with lights on and stop arm activated, at Chestnut and Harding Road. A description of the vehicle and driver led to Mercedes Vargus Ramirez being issued the citation at approximately 9 a.m. Monday for unlawful passing of a school bus. Authorities stress the importance of adhering to driving regulations and exercising caution around school vehicles. There were no injuries in this instance, but it only takes a second for a lapse to result in a serious injury to a child who is entering or exiting the bus.
