School Bus Safety
Tips for Drivers
Watch out for children walking or bicycling to school when backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage. Walk around your car or out to the sidewalk to check for any children about to cross your path before you get in the car.
Drive slowly and watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks. Be aware of children playing or standing at bus stops.
Children are usually taught to look both ways before crossing a street, but they could dart into traffic without looking if they're late or distracted.
- Be on the look out when driving through neighborhoods
- Learn the school bus laws
Red flashing lights and an extended stop-arm signal indicate that the bus has stopped and that children are getting on or off. Cars must stop a safe distance away and not start up until the red lights stop flashing, the stop sign has been folded back, and the bus continues on its way.
