08 - 23 - 2010 PennDOT reminds drivers & students of back to school safety
With the rumble of school buses soon heralding back-to-school season in PA, PennDOT reminds motorists & students to watch out for one another. PAâs school bus stopping law requires motorists approaching a school bus with its red lights flashing & stop arm extended to stop at least 10 ft. from the bus. Motorists approaching from all directions are required to stop.
