A school bus is usually a safe means of transportation to take children to and from school, and there are many laws in place to keep it that way. Unfortunately, many children have sustained serious injuries getting on or off the bus due to the inattention of other drivers.
According to the Indiana State Police, state law requires all motorists to stop when a school bus is picking up or dropping off children. School buses are equipped with a flashing stop sign which extends out from the bus when a child is getting on or off. All motor vehicles and all lanes of traffic are required to stop in case a child needs to cross. Failing to stop for a stopped school bus is a serious offense.
