Most people know that you cannot pass a school bus, either from behind or from the front, when the red lights are flashing and the "stop" arm is extended. What many people don't know is when you approach an intersection and a school bus is stopped on the far side or on the right or left of the intersection, red lights flashing, you can't not proceed.... even if you are turning away from the bus and not passing it until the flashing red ligts are no longer actuated. A conviction means 5 points and a 60 day suspension.
