  1. The laws about how far away to stop and what to do if you are parallel with the bus when the red lights come on are a bit of an issue here though.

  2. 255 not enough 500 or 1000 drivers would thank a little harder 1 child lost no dollar amount could fix that mistake get caught twice 2000 dollars and lost of driving privileges for a year this type of driving can not be tolerated

  3. These comments all have a common theme: confusion. They need to take away the confusion and standardize the rules across the states. Simply, you can not pass a school bus with its red lights on unless you are going the opposite direction on a DIVIDED road.

  4. She was literally on the other side of the road. If a cop has its lights on and is on the other side of the road do you pull to the side??

  5. Here in Arizona buses are required to put the stop sign out before they come to a complete stop. Here he did it a few seconds after he stopped, maybe bus laws in this state would help a little

  6. That's how law enforcement should be. Zero tolerance . What kind of people are these ? No respect for children, ANIMALS.

  7. There was this local driver who passed a stopped bus on Monday, and got a ticket.
    On Tuesday, in the same spot, he did it again and got another one.
    The punchline is he was driving a school bus himself, so he got two tickets and a pink slip too!

  8. Honestly I do think that some of the drivers didn't know they had to in the on coming Lane but that is there fault for not educating themselves

  9. bus driver needs to put flashing yellows on sooner, not seconds before stopping. in my home town, the bus drivers angle the bus into the second lane to really make the bus stand out at a stop.
    this was a bit of entrapment as the buss stopped so quickly without much warning.

  10. You’ll save 10 seconds at best. When you run over a child, you’ll be there until police arrive and then possibly go to jail

  11. I am school bus driver ,I refuse to pick up my children at left side,because people don’t stop for school bus. I am scared

  12. We need you all to come to Gaston County NC and just watch how many people pass stopped school buses with flashing red lights.

  13. its funny how Australia doesn't even have school dedicated buses

    they are just normal public buses set to a school route

  14. So when that Air Head runs over a kid what is she going to say-“LIKE oh my god LIKE are you LIKE ok LIKE I totally don’t know how to LIKE drive WAIT oh my god are you LIKE dead or something LIKE do I have to call Like 911 or whatever. Children-ENOUGH SAID!

  15. Authorities need to put cameras on the buses then mail out tickets to those who fail to stop on both sides, its really bad here in Ohio.

  16. I feel like it's a lack of education on knowing to stop before school buses from both directions. The stop sign should be larger and bigger.

  17. They should put road spikes on the side of the bus so wen the bus stops road spikes come out and who ever doesn't stop for kids to get on bus they get a ticket and some flat tire and as the bus leave after picking up the kids they retract back under the bus

  18. I still find this dumb law absolutely hilarious from a non-american perspective. Really? Your school bus has to be bright yellow, have flashing lights, that bar sticking off the front, and both traffic directions have to stop for you? In most of the world, a school specific bus isn't a thing in the first place, and traffic continues to flow. If the child is mentally developed enough to travel to school unattended, they're mentally developed enough to be taught basic road safety.

    Why is it the rest of the world handles this just fine but you gotta be autistic about it?

  19. I didn't know your supposed to stop I always thought it was just for the people driving behind the bus ,no wonder bus drivers would always freak out

  20. Four lane road with a median, bro, people really has to stop, flying past at whatever speed, thats a crash waiting to happen.

  21. The fine should be $2,550 first offence and their cars impounded. 1/2 of every fine should be donated to the school the offence occurred at

  22. Mandatory 3-6 months in jail will solve the problem and permanently removing DL. Repeat offenders get 5 years minimum in prison.

  23. Is this seriously a law in america? Like damn, the case at 3:25 is just kind of laughable. There's legitamately a good 10 to 15+ meters between the Bus and the car.

  24. You Do Not Know To Stop For A School Bus In Both Directions Thin It Is Better To Save Thin Sorry If You Are Going In The Same Or Opposite Direction Of School Buses You Should Be Smart Enough To Stop Of The School Buses

  25. Why don't the red light camera manufacturers do something useful for society, and instead design a system that goes on every single school bus… you pass after the lights and sign go on, it takes your picture and mails you an instant $1000 ticket… second violation gets you a $5000 ticket, plus charges of attempted vehicular homicide, then get creative after that. It's not hard to fix society's problems… we just have to be willing to do it, and institute real penalties for real crime.

  26. When you see the yellow light flashing on a bus and means they're preparing to stop when they stop you will see red lights flashing when the red lights flash that means you must stop in both directions if the best ever happened to be sitting in a four-way intersection turn all four ways must stop until the bust turns off the light and precedes to go if you fail to adhere to those rules then you should get a ticket

  27. To be onest, at 3:30 there is absolutely no wanger when the opposite traffic continues. On small, congested 2-lane neighborhood streets it's of course a completely different thing.

  28. That sign on the school bus says STOP on both sides… so where's the confusion about whether or not one is suppose to stop no matter what way they are going.

  29. In Montreal, Quebec (Canada) if you run a school bus stop sign it is a $2000 ticket and 9 demerit points of your licence.

  30. Kids think that because traffic is stopped they don't have to look both ways and then they get ran over by someone caught off guard. In all honesty, the kid and the driver should've payed attention

  31. I think it needs to be a $1000 dollar fine, automatic lose of licence for a year (remember… Driving is a privilege NOT a right) and then you need to earn your licence back the same way you got it!

  32. I mean if the kids aren’t crossing why the hell does it matter… it’s a busy road way and some of us gotta get work… unless the kids are crossing the street (which they shouldn’t on a busy road) then why does it matter? Just wasting our time

  33. I remember in 4th grade, I was crossing a kinda small 2 lane road and I checked both sides twice, then I started walking and I heard like muffled yells from inside the bus then I was out cold. I remember waking up 2 days later at a hospital like 3 hours away, dazed and confused. Weird bc from that day on, every bus driver let me do WHATEVER I WANTED I mean it was mayhem and I never understood why they would let me. And my mom got a shiny new Lexus after that. She told me like 10 years later and I’m still mad I didn’t get a cut of the settlement 💀

  34. We don't have that law in our country.
    Plus we don't have kids getting run over?
    Therefore it must not be regarding stopping 20 feet (feet? Oh yeah you're in the stone age still).
    It MUST be something else that is happening.
    I am aware our kids are told to exit on the curb side and not cross the road until the bus has left.
    So maybe the bus driver is not informing the kids of this?
    Something is wrong with your law.

  35. NO TOLERANCE! NO EXCUSES!! WHAT IF IF WAS YOUR CHILD THAT GOT RAN OVER AND KILLED??? TOMBSTONES DON'T TALK BACK!!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

  36. That bar on the front of the bus, put another big bar UNDER the bus that extends out into the street lol. Then anyone who drives past the bus runs smack into a metal bar.

  37. Gonna leave this here. My local laws. Every state is different.
    "In Washington, all motorists traveling in the same direction as a school bus must stop when the bus' stop sign “paddle” is extended and its red lights are flashing. Drivers traveling in the opposite direction must stop on two-lane roads but not if the roadway has three or more lanes, including turn lanes"

  38. I think the fine is not high enough, 1st Offense 500.00 dollars and three points. It is absolutely stupid to pass a forty foot bright yellow box. stay off the phone and you might see those yellow flashing lights before you see the blue ones !!!!

  39. Some people may actually be confused to as if they need to stop when on the opposite side of the road, what laws are taught to drivers can differ depending on the area and state. And yes it is possible to not see a school bus

  40. YOU WHY THEY DONT STOP, BECAUSE THEY DON,T NOW THE LOW PLUS YOU HAVE TO INCREASE A TICKE TO 1.000 DOLLARS TEXTING AND DRIVING MUST BE ALSO 1.000 DOLLARS NO TRAFFIC SCOOL OPSHON DUI 20.000 THOUSAND NO BELL OUT AT LIST ONE YEAR JALE TIME SPEEDING ALSO 2.000 AND THAT WAY ONLY WE CAN STOP THAT IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE SHAME ON YOU HOW YOU CAN SEE SCOOL BUS AND REALIZING KIDS CAN A CROSS AND IGNORING A BUS STOP IN SPECIALLY LOS ANGELES DRIVERS 80 PRCENT OF THEM GOVERNMENT MUST FORS THEM TO RETAKE ONE MORE TIME TO TAKE DRIVING TEST

  41. They should add metal poles to the buses that can extend on either side for about 5 feet. This way they can keep cars from passing them.

  42. "I didn't know I had to stop going the other direction!" Then you should be given a ticket for being stupid and lose your license requiring you to take your test over again.

  43. That female reporter got a dope body on her good heavens Kimberly Gill! Never mind she is married to a white guy another waste.
