Now that schools are back in session law enforcement and school officials are asking drivers to use extra care in school zones and when approaching stopped school buses. Remember, when the driver of a vehicle upon overtaking or meeting from either direction any school bus which has stopped on the roadway with its visual signals activated to pick up or drop off students shall stop their vehicle before reaching the school bus.

The driver of a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction of the stopped school bus on a divided highway or a highway with three or more lanes need not stop.

Unfortunately, school officials receive daily reports of vehicle passing school buses with their visual signals activated while students are being picked up or dropped off. Recently, a driver struck the door of a school bus while students were exiting the bus. This accident could have been prevented had the driver adhered to the law.
