School Bus Safety

Drivers Be Aware of the School Bus Safety Rules!

“If only I’d stopped when the yellow bus came my way.” No Regrets When You DRIVE WITH CARE – School Bus Safety Message.

Help keep our children safe when traveling to and from school by following these basic traffic safety rules and laws.

  • Slow down near bus stop and watch out for kids.
  • Red flashing lights and an extended stop arm means the school bus has stopped to load or unload children.
  • On a two-lane road or a divided roadway with no median, all drivers in both directions must stop.
  • Obey the traffic laws, signals and speed limits.
