Sharing the road safely with school buses

School buses are one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today. In fact, according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, riding a bus to school is 13 times safer than riding in a
passenger vehicle and 10 times safer than walking to school. The reality of school bus safety is that more
children are hurt outside the bus than inside as passengers. Most of the children who lose their lives in
bus-related crashes are pedestrians, four to seven years old, who are hit by the bus or by motorists
illegally passing a stopped school bus. For this reason, it is necessary to know the proper laws and
procedures for sharing the road safely with school buses:

 All 50 states have a law making it illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload
children.

 School buses use yellow flashing lights to alert motorists that they are preparing to stop to load or
unload children. Red flashing lights and an extended stop sign arm signals to motorists that the bus is
stopped and children are getting on or off the bus.

 All 50 states require that traffic in both directions stop on undivided roadways when students are
entering or exiting a school bus.

 While state laws vary on what is required on a divided roadway, in all cases, traffic behind the school
bus (traveling in the same direction) must stop.

 The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Stop your
car far enough from the bus to allow children the necessary space to safely enter and exit the bus.

 Be alert. Children are unpredictable. Children walking to or from their bus are usually very
comfortable with their surroundings. This makes them more likely to take risks, ignore hazards or fail
to look both ways when crossing the street.

 Never pass a school bus on the right. It is illegal and could have tragic consequences.
