Car accidents and back to school

As kids head back to school in the next couple of weeks everyone wants to avoid motor vehicle accidents. Drivers must be responsible about sharing the road with school buses. Here are a few reminders about the law concerning school buses:

-When meeting or overtaking a stopped school bus with red signal lights flashing and a "stop" arm extended, drivers MUST STOP.

-When approaching an intersection where a school bus is stopped with red signal lights and stop arm extended, drivers MUST STOP.

-Be sure to stop at least 10 feet from the school bus, and watch children exiting the bus. Do not move until they have reached a place of safety.

-Drivers do not have to stop on a highway with clearly defined dividing sections or physical barriers providing separate roadways when the school bus is on the opposite side of the road.

-If the law is violated, motorists will receive a 60-day driver license suspension, five points on a driving record and a $250 fine.

For more information on school bus safety and/or motor vehicle accidents please feel free to contact your local state representative or the lawyers at Dugan & associates at 888-99-DUGAN.

Let's all make school bus safety a priority on the roads as kids head back to school.
