When to Stop for School Buses
When to Stop
School Bus Laws
Never pass or overtake a school bus in a designated loading/unloading zone.
Exercise caution near loading/unloading zones, such as near schools or nearby roadways.
All vehicles traveling in the same direction as a school bus must stop if stop arm extends and lights flash.
All vehicles traveling in the opposite direction as a school bus must stop unless there is a grassy median or other physical barrier.
One of the first states to adopt school bus cameras to document speeding and other traffic violations around school buses, Georgia imposes strict penalties for violations.
School Bus Safety Tips
Never pass or overtake buses from the right lane.
Once stopped due to yellow or red flashing lights and extended stop arm, do not move until children have unloaded from the bus, lights cease flashing, and bus driver contracts stop arm.
School Bus Signals
Yellow flashing lights signify a school bus is beginning to stop to load or unload children. Drivers must reduce speed and drive vigilantly.
Red flashing lights signify a school bus is stopped. It is illegal and unsafe to drive, pass, or overtake stopped school buses.
Stop arm extensions accompany red flashing lights and act as an additional reminder to stop around school buses that are loading or unloading students.
