Driving safely near school buses

There is a 40km/h speed limit for traffic passing a school bus that is setting down or picking up school children. This speed limit is for all traffic travelling in the same direction as the bus, whether the bus is stationary or moving.

Lights will flash on the front and back of the bus reminding drivers that there may be children crossing or about to cross the road.

Buses can’t stop quickly because they are large and heavy vehicles. So, remember:

  • Reduce speed to 40km/h when bus lights are flashing

  • Give way to buses

  • Watch out for children crossing

  • Never park in or near a bus stop or bus

 

 Informal school bus stops

Informal bus stops are not sign posted and are usually found in rural areas. They may be at the front of a property, or on the side of the road, which may make children difficult to see.

Leave plenty of space when you’re driving or stopped around buses, to keep children safe and improve bus drivers’ vision of the road environment

 

 Helping children on and off the bus safely

 Your children are most at risk in the minutes after getting off the bus. Here are some ways you can reduce this risk:

  • Always meet your child at the bus Never meet them on the opposite side of the road and call them across.

  • Wait until the bus has gone, then choose a safe place to cross the Remember to Stop! Look! Listen! Think!

  • If you cannot meet your child, organise for another trusted adult to take your place.

  • Wait at the bus stop and stand at least one step back from the edge of the road.

  • Buckle up if the bus has seatbelts.

  • Regular cleaning of the steering wheel, other driver controls and the driver’s area in general.
  • Additional cleaning will also be carried out in the shared areas of the depot and office environment.
  • Handling of cash is a necessary requirement of our business and drivers have been informed about being conscious of not transferring any contamination to the eyes or mouth. We have made gloves available to drivers, if preferred, when driving or cleaning.
