School buses will soon roll out across Seattle. Here’s a review of what to do when their red lights flash.
RULE 1 – When you’re behind the bus
Always stop, regardless of the number of lanes. Never try to pass on the right, since that’s where kids are loading and unloading.
RULE 2 – When the bus is coming toward you
Stop unless the road has three or more lanes (at least one in each direction, plus a center turn lane) or the lanes are separated by a physical barrier or median.
Once the red lights come on, you need to stay stopped until the bus driver turns them off.
