[ARCHIVED] Stop! Flashing ahead!

School bus stop arm

Texas law requires that you stop for a stopped school bus with flashing red lights and stop arm extended. Children get on and off the bus and may cross the road. They count on you to stop!

You must remain stopped until the bus starts moving, the bus driver signals for you to go, or the flashing lights are turned off.

If you break the law, you can be charged with a misdemeanor and fined up to $1,250. For a second conviction, you can be fined up to $2,000 and receive a 6-month driver license suspension.
