For the citizens of Florida, school is back in session.  This means buses are back on the roads and students will be meeting and making new friends.  The start of a new school year is an exciting time, but with it comes an increased exposure to risks that are easily avoidable if approached properly.

SPEEDING IN A SCHOOL ZONE

In Florida, speeding fines vary by county, if you are caught speeding in a school zone, your fine will be doubled.

PASSING A SCHOOL BUS

Stopping for a school bus may seem like common sense.  According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, over 2300 people were ticketed in 2016 for ignoring school bus top signals.  Under Florida law, all drivers are required to come to a complete stop upon approaching any school bus which displays a stop signal.  The driver is required to remain stopped while the bus is stopped and may not begin moving until the stop signal has been completely withdrawn.  A driver who violates this law and passes the bus on the left side could receive a minimum fine of $165.00.

WHEN DO I HAVE TO STOP OF A SCHOOL BUS?

If you are behind or beside a school bus traveling in the same direction, it goes without saying that you must stop and follow the traffic rules.
