SCHOOL BUS SAFETY AND TRAFFIC LAWS

 

Obeying the Law

 

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, drivers must follow these school and school bus safety rules:

  • Adhere to the posted speed limit in designated school zones.
  • When approaching an intersection where a crossing guard is present in the crosswalk with the stop sign raised, do not cross – or turn – into the crosswalk until the guard has completely left the crosswalk.
  • Never stop a vehicle in a manner that blocks a crosswalk.
  • When you approach a stopped school bus (from behind) with lights flashing and the stop arm extended, you must stop.
  • When you approach a stopped school bus (from front) with lights flashing and the stop arm extended, you also must stop, unless:
    • you are on a divided highway and the roadways are separated by an unpaved space at least five feet in width, or
    • you are on a divided highway and the roadways are separated by a physical barrier.
  • You are required to stop at least 10 feet away from the school bus.
  • You must not resume driving until the school bus turns its lights off and withdraws its stop sign.
  • Be certain all exiting children have reached a safe place before proceeding.
