School Bus Violations in Philadelphia PA
Defending citations for Passing or Overtaking a School Bus in Pennsylvania. You may have been distracted or did not have the opportunity to stop, or did not realize that you were required to stop for a bus in the opposite direction several lanes away on a divided or semi-divided road. Or perhaps you are the unsuspecting victim of an over vigilant police officer or bus driver with unreasonable expectations or a chip on shoulder.
It is illegal in Pennsylvania to pass or overtake a school bus when the red lights are on and the arm is out. You must stop when you meet or overtake a school bus with its lights flashing. You must stop when you approach an intersection where a school bus is stopped. You must stop at least 10 feet away from the bus, wait until the lights stop flashing and all children have cleared the roadway before moving.
