Schools in Fremont County are back in session, and we are seeing school buses on our roads once more. Now is a good time to remind our motoring public of the law pertaining to school buses offloading passengers. The driver of a motor vehicle on any highway, road, or street, upon meeting or overtaking from either direction any school bus that has stopped, shall stop the vehicle at least twenty feet before reaching the school bus if its flashing red lights have been actuated. The driver shall not proceed until the flashing red lights are no longer being actuated.

There is an exception for vehicles on a highway that is divided into two or more roadways by a depressed, raised, or painted median or other intervening space serving as a clearly indicated dividing section or island. If you see a school bus on the other side of the median, you are not required to stop.

Thank you for helping keep our children safe, Fremont County!
