Watch that child!

Motorists need to use extra caution when approaching a slow moving or stopped school bus. Students are at the greatest risk of death or injury when they are entering or exiting a school bus.  A childís life is worth much more than the 30 seconds that you will might save just because you donít want to be stopped.
School buses are equipped with both amber and red warning lights to advise motorists a stop is being made. Amber flashing lights indicate CAUTION, the school bus is preparing to stop. Red flashing lights mean STOP, children are boarding or leaving the bus.

Motorists approaching from either direction are required to stop at least ten (10) feet from the stopped school bus and are not to resume motion until the bus has departed. If a school bus is stopped on a roadway divided into four or more lanes, only traffic proceeding in the same direction as the bus must stop.


Parents should talk with their children, both those who ride the bus and those who drive to school, and explain the laws and school bus safety rules. Children should be instructed to never walk behind a bus and should stay at least ten (10) feet away from the side and front of the bus. In addition, parents are reminded to check childrenís clothing and remove, shorten or replace any drawstrings, backpack straps or other items that could potentially get caught in the entrance door area of the school bus.
