Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law
Each year, drivers illegally pass school buses nearly two million times. Each illegal pass-by could result in a tragic injury or fatality of a student. The inconvenience of an extra few seconds spent waiting for a stopped school bus is insignificant compared to the loss of a child's life.
UCFSD would like to remind our drivers of the laws and safe practices to take when approaching a school bus.
Did you Know -
When you meet or overtake a stopped school bus with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.
When you approach an intersection where a school bus is stopped with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.
You MUST STOP at least ten (10) feet away from the school bus.
You MUST WAIT until the red lights have stopped flashing and the stop arm has been withdrawn before moving.
DO NOT MOVE until all the children have reached a place of safety.
There are severe penalties associated with running a school bus stop. For more information on Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law, including an animated graphic demonstrating when you must stop, visit www.penndot.gov/safety
