GREENSBORO, N.C. — When do you stop? When is it okay to keep going? Don't guess. A kid's life could be hanging in the balance and at the very least, you could be out $500.
Here's the biggest thing to note:
If you're behind a school bus, even if it's in the next lane, and it stops then you stop.
There are only two times oncoming traffic does not have to stop for a bus:
(1) When there is a divided highway of four lanes with a median and
(2) When there are four lanes with a center turning lane.
Just in case you needed extra incentive to NOT pass a school bus, it's a minimum fine of $500. And remember, many school buses have cameras on them to catch drivers.
