What to do when approaching a school bus?

A reminder to all motorists:

When approaching a school bus, if you see amber flashing lights, slow down and proceed with caution. If the red flashing lights are activated, you must come to a complete stop. If you are approaching the bus from the opposite direction on an undivided highway, you must also stop. Passing a school bus with red flashing lights is a serious offence and will result in a minimum fine of $360.

The single greatest threat to the safety of children who ride school buses is motorists who pass the bus when children are loading or unloading.
