AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Summer is coming to a close, and students are heading back to school. Here's a quick refresher on driving rules when school buses make their stops in Georgia.
If you're riding on a two-lane road, when a school bus stops, ALL traffic from both directions must stop.
On a four-lane roadway without a median, ALL traffic from both directions must stop when the bus stops.
For two-lane roadways with a center turning lane, ALL traffic from both directions must stop. The same goes for roadway with four lanes or more with a center turner lane.
And on a highway of four lanes or more with a median separation, only traffic following the bus must stop.
See the attached diagram from the Georgia Driver's License Manual for a visual of these rules.
