  1. If this is the case then why even use the red lights at all. Wouldn’t it make more sense to use the hazard lights to notify the drivers behind the bus that the bus will be stopping (sort of like a public bus)?

  2. Be careful!!! NKSD often stops at CROSSWALKS when stopping at 3+ lane road… opposing traffic may not have to stop for school bus, but a soon as a kid steps off, crosswalk is “occupied”.

  3. Actually, Jerry, if the road is 3+ lanes, then traffic coming from the opposite direction of the bus does not have to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk until they are in the middle lane (for 3 lanes), or lane closest to their side of the road (road with 4 or more lanes). See RCW 46.61.235

    1. Agreed… but more than once the “little kids” hit the crosswalk then dash across the street…
      Just use caution, kids are unpredicable.

  4. Maybe the child should have an adult waiting at the bus stop if the child is too young to cross the road safely?
