Stopping for school buses

When a school bus stops and red alternating lights are flashing, traffic in both directions must stop. Remain stopped until the lights stop flashing, the bus starts moving, or the driver signals you to move on. You are not required to stop for yellow flashing lights, but be warned the red lights will soon begin flashing.


Stopping for School Buses: What You Need to Know
It's critical to be aware of the guidelines for stopping when you notice a school bus on the road. 
Children must travel to and from school securely, and breaking the law can endanger student safety. School buses are an essential part of this. 
What you should know about stopping for school buses is provided below.

When a school bus is stopped to pick up or drop off passengers, it is generally against the law to pass it. 
All vehicles in both directions must stop completely at least 10 feet away from the bus when it stops. 
You must stop when the bus's flashing lights are on, the stop arm is extended, and the stop signal is visible. You must stay there until the flashing lights stop and the stop arm is drawn back.

It's crucial to remember that some jurisdictions demand that motorists stop for school buses even if they are on the opposite side of a divided roadway. 
Drivers must slow down and be ready to stop if necessary in certain situations.

Understanding the guidelines for loading and unloading is also crucial. 
The bus driver must confirm that all passengers have safely gotten on or off the bus before moving it. 
Before moving the bus, the driver must wait for all passengers to leave the area.

Last but not least, it's critical to understand the consequences for failing to stop for a school bus. 
These sanctions might include everything from fines to jail term, depending on the state. 
Additionally, it's critical to keep in mind that when driving, safety should always come first. 
The safety of our children depends on us stopping for school buses.
