In a recent video posted by the Victoria Police Department, Office Kneif announced that Victoria PD would soon be conducting a special operation about school buses.  So now would be a good time to revisit how to navigate a stopped bus so you don't get fined because it's EXPENSIVE!  If you fail to stop for a school bus you will be fined the amount of $810.00.

Passing a stopped school bus is a Class A misdemeanor if the driver causes serious bodily injury to a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or anyone else. A second offense could lead to jail time. Be sure to slow down, look out for kids crossing the street and be aware of your surroundings. As always, put down your cell phones.

TWO-LANE ROADS: Both directions must stop!
MULTI-LANE, PAVED ACROSS: Both directions must stop! 
DIVIDED HIGHWAY(unpaved or median):  Vehicles behind the bus MUST STOP. Vehicles traveling in the opposite direction must proceed with CAUTION. 
YOU MUST REMAIN STOPPED UNTIL THE BUS IS IN MOTION AGAIN!
