You are driving along a divided highway. You notice that a school bus has stopped for passengers on the other side of the road. Its red lights are flashing. Do you need to stop here?


Normally you cannot pass a school bus which has stopped for passengers. However, you don't need to stop when you are on the opposite side of a divided highway. Note that a central turning lane or a painted median is not sufficient; the highway must be physically divided.
