Q:Exactly when do I need to stop when a school bus is letting out children?

Answer:• Section 22454(a) CVC states that you must come to a complete stop if a schoolbus is displaying the required lights and sign and you may not proceed until the lights and/or stop sign have ceased operation. • A vehicle approaching the schoolbus from the front on a divided or multiple-lane (two or more lanes of travel in each direction) need not stop. o Per 21651(a) CVC, a divided highway is designated by barriers , double lines, or other markings/paving not less then 2 feet in width. • A vehicle approaching the schoolbus from the rear must stop.
