For many students, school is back in session. School buses are back in operation, and we are asking the public to adhere to school bus safety traffic laws.
As a reminder to motorists, all vehicular traffic must stop no less than 30 feet from a school bus when the bus’s stop signals are activated. A vehicle approaching a stopped school bus from the opposite direction does not have to stop when traffic is separated by a divided median. However, drivers should always remain cautious of children boarding or exiting the bus.
