School Bus Safety

School bus

Sharing the Road with School Buses

Never pass a bus from behind - or from either direction if you're on an undivided road - if it is stopped to load or unload children. 

If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended; traffice MUST stop.

The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them space to safety enter and exit the bus.

Be alert!  Children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks.

The speed limit in school zones is 20 mph during school recess and during the opening and closing hours of schools.  A speeding offense in a school zone carries a maximum possible penalty of $300 plus court costs.
