Remember These School Bus Traffic Rules and Share Them


With the 2016 – 2017 school year getting underway across the Ark-La-Tex the school buses are rolling full of kiddos on their way to and from school. Here are some rules to remember about school buses stopping and what you should do. Feel free to share!

Most important tip I can give someone in doubt of what they are supposed to do… If the red lights are flashing… STOP.

The fine for passing a stopped school bus with lights flashing in Texarkana, Texas is $625. While in Texarkana Arkansas the fine is only $175.

What to do when a school bus is stopping to pick-up or drop-off students…

Vehicles traveling in both directions must stop.

MULTI-LANE (paved across)
Vehicles traveling in both directions must stop.

DIVIDED HIGHWAY: (unpaved median/divider)
Vehicles behind the school bus MUST stop. Vehicles traveling in the opposite direction may proceed with caution.
