Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law

Each year, drivers illegally pass school buses nearly two million times. Each illegal pass-by could result in a tragic injury or fatality of a student. The inconvenience of an extra few seconds spent waiting for a stopped school bus is insignificant compared to the loss of a child's life.

UCFSD would like to remind our drivers of the laws and safe practices to take when approaching a school bus.

Did you Know -

  • When you meet or overtake a stopped school bus with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.

  • When you approach an intersection where a school bus is stopped with red signal lights flashing and stop arm extended, you MUST STOP.

  • You MUST STOP at least ten (10) feet away from the school bus.

  • You MUST WAIT until the red lights have stopped flashing and the stop arm has been withdrawn before moving.

  • DO NOT MOVE until all the children have reached a place of safety.

There are severe penalties associated with running a school bus stop. For more information on Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law, including an animated graphic demonstrating when you must stop, visit www.penndot.gov/safety
