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

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.
