    STOP: It’s the Law

    Operation Stop Arm enforces Georgia’s School Bus Stop Law:

    • Two-lane roadway: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop.
    • Two-lane roadway with a center turning lane: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop.
    • Four-lane roadway without a median separation: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop.
    • Roadway of four lanes or more with a center turning lane: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop.
    • Divided highway of four lanes or more with a median separation: When school bus stops for passengers, only traffic following the bus must stop.

    Decreasing your speed will reduce serious hazards and promote safety awareness. It is important to follow these laws for the safety of bus passengers, and all drivers on the road as well. Failure to comply can result in fines up to a $1000, up to 6 points on a driving record, and other penalties. Promote safety awareness on the road by being vigilant and aware of these laws.
