40KM/H SPEED LIMIT FOR TRAFFIC PASSING A SCHOOL BUS
The Council would like to remind drivers of their responsibility whilst driving around school buses. There is a 40km/h speed limit for traffic passing a school bus that is picking up or setting down school children. The speed limit is for all traffic travelling in the same direction as the bus, whether the bus is stationary or moving. The 40km/h speed limit must be observed when the rear ‘wigwag’ lights on the bus are flashing. Flashing headlights on these buses also alert oncoming motorists that children are close.
