40KM/H SPEED LIMIT FOR TRAF­FIC PASS­ING A SCHOOL BUS

Southern Riverina news - - News -

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.
