School Bus Safety

As thousands of students are heading back to class, Maryland State Police and the Maryland Center for School Safety are reminding motorists to be alert as children are getting on and off school buses. Remember, drivers must stop at least 20 feet from the bus, regardless of which direction they’re approaching. They must not attempt to pass by the bus until the stop signal and flashing lights are off and the bus is in motion once again. Violation of these laws incurs a $250 fine if caught on camera, and up to $570 and a three-point penalty on a driver’s license if stopped by a police officer.
