The Wheels On The Bus

Here in the U.S. we see a lot of bright yellow signs which state: “Motorcycles Are Everywhere - Look Twice, Save a Life”. That’s a good campaign. So where is the initiative which says: “School Buses Are Everywhere - STOP For Flashing Red Lights”?

Swing by Papamoka Straight Talk to read a headline no one ever wants to see in print.

here in New South Wales there is a mandatory 40km speed limit within school limits, but nothing for buses, that I've noticed.

Hi DMM -
There are often special signs just before school zones which flash a reduced speed during school hours. That speed is comparable to your 40km.

Our school buses have red lights on the front and back. These lights flash when the bus stops to drop off or pick up students. They also often have a pop out stop sign which reinforces the message. Drivers traveling in both directions are required to stop for the buses.

It's amazing that folks can ignore all that information telling them to STOP!

Maybe we should print them.
