Remember safety. Drivers will need to get used to sharing the roads with school buses. You may be rusty on the rules of stopping for a school bus. Here's what you need to remember:
Drivers must stop on a street or highway at least 20 feet from a school bus that is stopped with flashing red lights. This is required for all lanes--with the exception of divided highways and roads with a center median.
Cars cannot pass until those flashing red lights are turned off.
Some buses have flashing yellow lights. That gives drivers a heads up that a bus is about to stop and put on its flashing red lights.
Don't expect to be in the clear if no one stops you. A bus driver has up to 24 hours to report a violator. Fines are between $30 and $300. CLICK HERE for more school bus safety rules.
Some police departments will have additional officers in school zones to make sure drivers are obeying the rules.
