School Bus Safety 🚌

  • Community Update

You might see school buses now showing off a new Eight Lamp Amber-Red Warning System.

What you’ll see now:

🚨 Flashing Amber Lights indicate that the bus is slowing and preparing to stop

🚨 Flashing Red Lights indicate the bus is stopped and you are required by law to stop as well

🚨 Remember to stop at least 20 metres behind the bus and do not begin moving again until the lights stop flashing (that’s about two full bus lengths)

🚨 If there is a median, only traffic on the same side as the bus must stop; otherwise, traffic on both sides of the street must stop

With school just around the corner, watch for buses with the new system and give them lots of space for safety.
