Back to School: When should you stop for a school bus?

Posted: Updated:

The South Carolina Highway Patrol released a school bus safety reminder Sunday as thousands of children prepare to return to the classroom this week in the Lowcountry.

Drivers must always stop when they are traveling behind a school bus with flashing amber or red lights. When they are approaching a stopped school bus with flashing red lights from the opposite direction, drivers must stop if they are on a two-lane road.

If motorists are on a four lane (or more) highway or private road and meet a stopped school bus, they do not have to stop. However, drivers should slow down and proceed with caution.

Refer to the attached graphic illustration.
