With schools starting over the next week, there will be numerous school buses picking up kids in the morning and dropping off in the afternoon. This will be quite an adjustment for many as schools have been closed since March.
A reminder that flashing yellow lights on the top of the bus are a warning that the red lights will be on shortly and stop sign will be out. These were put in place so you can prepare to stop. They don't mean speed up to get past (like so many do at traffic lights).
The red lights and stop sign mean just that - STOP!
Bus companies forward violators information to us and you could be issued a $325 citation. More importantly someone could be seriously injured by failing to obey the lights and sign.
If you are unsure of when / if you have to stop, hopefully the attached image will help clarify.
