Bus Safety

  • Drivers traveling in either direction on a two-lane road must stop when a school bus activates its flashing lights and stop sign.
  • Drivers traveling in the same direction as a school bus on a four-lane road must stop for a stopped school bus. Drivers travelling in the opposite direction are not required to stop.
  • Delaware law requires vehicles to stop even when the bus is stopped to load/unload students on private property.
  • Anyone convicted of passing a stopped school bus can be fined as much as $230 for the first offense, and as much as $575 for the second offense. The individual will also have their license suspended for between 1 and 12 months
