You are following a school bus when its yellow lights start flashing. What does this mean?


A school bus turns on its flashing yellow lights to warn drivers that it will soon stop for passengers. Under Ohio law, if the school bus stops on a roadway with fewer than four lanes, all vehicles approaching the bus from either direction must stop at least 10 feet from the bus. If the school bus stops on a roadway with four or more lanes, only vehicles traveling in the same direction as the bus must stop.
