Motorists reminded to abide school bus laws as back-to-school season returns


Class in now in session for those in the Dare County School district and the Town of Kill Devil Hills is reminding all motorists to proceed with caution as school buses vacate the roads once again.

All traffic must stop for a stopped bus, unless it is on a road of four or more lanes with a median or center turning lane. In those instances, oncoming traffic does not have to stop because children will not be crossing the road to reach the bus.

Traffic following a bus must always stop with the bus. If in doubt, always stop for a stopped bus.
