A Quick Reminder on How to React to School Buses on the Road
It’s back to school time and school buses will be on the roads at Spring Hill on August 21 and Pine Tree and Longview on August 28. Our friends over at the Longview Police Department want to give you a friendly reminder on how to react to certain situations when you come in contact with a school bus.
Pop quiz! Check out the picture above and by looking at it, which photo is correct when a school bus has on their sign to indicate the bus is dropping off passengers?
If you chose all three then you are correct! However, (c) is the only photo where cars are not required to stop when approaching a school bus. There must be some type of barrier or unpaved area between the two roadways in order to continue to approaching and passing a school bus that has visual signals working.
Remember, no matter how much of a hurry you're in, those are lives running across the street.
