On Saturday, September 21st, David Daggett of Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law, appeared on Triad Today to explain North Carolina’s school bus traffic laws. With busses back on the roads for another school year, it is extremely important that all drivers are aware of the rules of the road when it comes to school busses.
Watch David discuss the rules and regulations:
Here are some of the most likely school bus road scenarios, and what to do:
When you are traveling on a two-lane roadway and a school bus stops, traffic must stop in all lanes.
On a two-lane road with a center turning lane, traffic in all lanes, including the turning lane, must stop.
In a situation where you are driving on a four-lane road with no median or separation, all traffic must stop.
On a divided highway, or road with four or more lanes which has a median separation, traffic on the side of the school bus must stop. Traffic on the opposite side of the median may proceed with caution.
On a roadway with four or more lanes with divided by a center turning lane, drivers on the side of the school bus must stop. Traffic on the other side of the center turning lane may continue on.
David also participated in the Roundtable segment, alongside Ogi Overman and Dave Briggs.
