Must I stop for that school bus?

The Indiana State Police would like to remind motorists of Indiana laws concerning school buses, flashing lights and stop arms.

When approaching a school bus, from any direction, which is stopped with its flashing red lights activated and its stop arm extended, motorists are required to stop, even on multiple lane highways, with the only exception being — Motorists who are on a highway that is divided by a barrier or unimproved median are required to stop only if they are traveling the same direction as the school bus. If there is no unimproved median or barrier, then all lanes in all directions must stop.

Remember, when approaching a school bus be prepared to stop and watch for slowed or stopped traffic.

Disregarding a school bus stop arm is a serious violation and one that school bus drivers are quick to report. Violation of this law is a Class A infraction and is punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000.
