One of our top priorities is getting our kids to and from school safely. Beginning with this school year, the school bus camera enforcement program, which began on January 2, 2014, is expanding the school bus camera enforcement program.
Maryland law requires drivers to stop for a school bus with its stop-arm signal and flashing lights activated. That applies to motorists traveling in the same direction as the bus, as well drivers approaching the bus from the opposite direction UNLESS there is a physical barrier, such as a median. When traveling in the opposite direction, it may help to remember that Paint (the line markings painted on the roadway) Doesn’t Protect (children who may be about to cross the street).
