School is Back in Session and Buses Are on The Road

School Bus Stop Sign

School is back in session and buses are on the road.  Just a reminder from NC-DMV on stopping for buses:

Drivers need to remember that…

    On a two-lane road, all traffic from both directions must stop;

    On a two-lane road with a center turning lane, all traffic must come to a stop;

    When on a four-lane road without a median, traffic from both directions has to stop;

    In the case of a divided highway with four or more lanes, only traffic following the school bus needs to stop; and

    When on a road with four lanes or more with a center turning lane, just traffic following the bus must stop.

Passing a stopped school bus can put 5 points on your driver’s license and 4 points on your insurance policy.  4 points on your insurance policy could cause your premiums to increase by 80% for three years from the date of conviction.
