The Highway Traffic Act requires that all traffic stop when approaching from the front or overtaking from the rear of a school bus that is stopped with red signals flashing on the front and rear. Traffic must remain stopped until the red signal lights and stop arm are no longer flashing. The law applies regardless of the speed limit. Failure to do so will result in the deduction of six demerit points plus a fine.
