Safety Around School Buses
When the lights are flashing, don’t be passing!
Motorists: when you meet a school bus on the road, even on the highway, you have to stop if their lights are flashing. What other rules and responsibilities do drivers have when driving around school buses? The Montana Highway Patrol’s informational video shows several different scenarios, and tells you when you have to stop vs. when it’s safe to go.
MDT would like to remind everyone to stay alert, share the road, and obey all traffic laws. Motorists should avoid all distractions while driving and look twice to save a life.
