Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
THE SCHOOL BUSSES ARE BACK – Be Vigilant With These Safety Reminders:
- Watch for flashing lights activated and/or the “stop arm” extended.
- If behind the stopped school bus, you MUST stop at least 20 metres from the rear of the bus and wait for flashing lights to be turned off.
- In front, you MUST stop before reaching the front of the stopped bus, unless your lane is separated from the bus by a permanent median strip.
- These rules even apply on multi-lane highways with no median strip.
- Note: bus drivers MUST stop to check sightlines at level rail crossings.
If a child is riding the school bus, or walking in front of the waiting bus, their survival is in your hands. Click here for more school bus safety tips.
