(Detroit News Watch) – The school year has begun and the Michigan State Police wants drivers to be cautious when it comes to driving in areas where there will be a lot of kids and school drop off points.
Here’s a quick reminder on the school bus rules:
– When overhead lights on a bus are flashing yellow, prepare to stop.
– When overhead lights on a bus are flashing red, stop.
– When hazard warning lights are flashing, proceed with caution.
– Vehicles traveling on both directions must stop.
MULTI-LANE PAVED ACROSS:
