School Bus Stop Reminders

As we begin our first full week of school, please keep in mind the traffic laws regarding bus stops. We want to ensure the safety of our children and all drivers. The first image shows three scenarios for bus stops; the remaining images show aerial views of examples around our county.

Two Lane Roads - All traffic stops on both sides when a bus stops.

Multi-Lane Road Paved Across - All traffic stops on both sides when a bus stops.

Multi-Lane Road with Unpaved Median or Physical Barrier - Traffic behind the bus must stop; traffic on the opposite side of the road not required to stop.

Be aware and arrive safely! Allow for extra time if buses travel on your route.
