I have noticed that over the years school bus driving laws have gone by the wayside. These laws need to be re-enforced and listed for drivers to know and use. These laws were made for the students' safety.
School bus laws that people tend not to know or abide by:
1. You can not cross in front or beside a school bus if its red lights are flashing. Students may be crossing at all four corners running for the bus or exiting the bus after school.
2. Even if there are no stop signs or the driver has a green light, you must stop in front, beside or behind a school bus when its red lights are flashing. Example: Broad Avenue and 29th Street.
3. On a four-lane road, there must be a physical barrier (ie: trees, concrete, metal rail) for traffic to continue without stopping on the opposite side of the highway.
Please note yellow lights flashing warn drivers of the school bus preparing to stop. This is not the time for drivers to decide to speed up.
Enforcement of these laws and penalties would help.
