Question:

Can you pass a school bus that is stopped with its flashing red signals switched on?

A
Explaination

You must stop at least 20 feet from a school bus that is stopped with its flashing red lights on, whether or not you are traveling in the same direction as the school bus. This applies to vehicles traveling in both directions. (The only exception is if the school bus is on the opposite side of a divided highway; in that case, you can proceed.) You can proceed with caution after the bus has switched off its red lights. [Stopping for School Vehicles, Driver Information, District of Columbia Driving Manual]
