Number one: Help us keep buses safe by following the law and do not pass a school bus with red lights flashing. "FLASHING RED means KIDS AHEAD"!
Pre-warning “amber” lights are activated at least 300 to 500 feet before stopping. When the “amber” lights flash, you should immediately prepare to stop your vehicle.
Remember these rules for the “type of road” you meet a bus on:
- Any 3 lane or less road, drivers from all directions “must STOP” when the bus has the red lights flashing.
- Any 4 lane or more road, drivers traveling in the SAME direction as the bus need to stop behind the bus, when you see the red lights flashing.
- Any 4 lane or more road, drivers traveling in the OPPOSITE direction as the bus do not need to stop when you see the red lights flashing.
We need your help to keep students safe when they cross streets.
Leave plenty of room around school buses in traffic and be mindful that buses are required to stop at all train crossings.
