Never pass a bus from behind if it is stopped to load or unload children.

If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop.

The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough to allow them space to safely enter and exit.

Be alert; children are often unpredictable and tend to ignore hazards and take risks.
