When to stop for a school bus
Charleston, S.C. (WCIV) —
As we close in on the date that students grades K-12 will head back to school, the South Carolina Highway Patrol wants to remind drivers of something important.
Plain and simple -- on a two lane road, traffic heading in both directions must stop. In a road with four or more lanes, traffic heading in the opposite direction of the bus does not have to stop.
What's the penalty if you don't get it right? It's a $500 fine and six points for the first offense and a $1,000 fine and six points for the second offense.
