Question:

You are on a divided highway. You see a school bus stopped with red flashing signals on the opposite side of the highway. What should you do?

A
Explaination

Normally, vehicles traveling in either direction must stop for a school bus that has stopped for passengers. However, in Maryland, vehicles don't have to stop for a school bus that is stopped on the opposite side of a divided roadway (a roadway with a non-drivable median or barrier). (Note: The laws on this are different in some other jurisdictions. In New York State, you must stop for a school bus even when it is on the opposite side of a divided roadway. When traveling out of state, always check the local traffic laws.) [Drivers are to stop for school vehicles, D. School Vehicles, Section VII - Sharing the Road, Maryland Driver's Manual]
