School Bus Safety
School Zone: When school is in session the speed limit in the school zone changes. Times that this occurs is 7:00 am to 8:30 am and again 2:45 pm to 4:00 pm.
When should you stop for a school bus?
Drivers on the road may be confused when they see a school bus stop arm pop out during a student’s pick-up and drop-off. This depends on the number of lanes.
Two lane highway: Drivers traveling in both directions must stop for school buses. By law, drivers must remain stopped until the bus is in motion again or the bus drive signals that traffic can proceed.
Four lane highway: Drivers in the lanes on the opposite side of the highway, of the stopped school bus, do not need to stop. Only vehicles that are traveling the same direction as the school bus, on the same side of the highway are required to stop.
