Education Can Save You a Citation and More

Are you confused about the rules of the road when it comes to stopping for a school bus?  If you answered yes, you are not alone.

 Below are graphics that depict what drivers must do when approaching a stopped school bus with red flashing lights. Drivers who fail to comply with FS Statute 316.172 may receive a written citation and/or a mandatory court appearance.
