Drivers, Leaders, Trainers & Mechanics

Regrettably, many cars and other vehicles drive past stopped buses when they are supposed to stop. In the majority of cases, this is due to ignorance of the laws, rather than aggressive driving. This is a very dangerous practice and puts the lives of our children at risk. bus safety awareness Most drivers are only told about the rules for passing a stopped school bus with flashing red lights only when they learn to drive - often many years ago. We would like to request the help of the media in reminding all drivers of bus safety practices when buses are stopped with their yellow or red lights flashing.
  1. When you see a bus, assume children will be around and take extra care – leave lots of space around the bus.
  2. When the bus turns on the flashing yellow lights – this means it is about to stop either at a railroad crossing or to pick up kids. Slow down and prepare to stop.
  3. When the bus turns on the flashing red lights – this means STOP in BOTH directions. Never pass a bus with flashing red lights in either direction. Stop well back from the bus. If you have any doubt     what to do – STOP.
