School Bus Safety

Whether on a city street, highway or county road, motorists travelling in any direction must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing. 

Once all passengers have boarded or departed the bus and it is safe to proceed, the upper red lights will stop flashing. Do not start moving until the red lights have stopped flashing and the bus begins to move.

Be aware, drive safe and help protect our future generation.
