OPP are reminding motorists that the law requires drivers to stop when school busses are stopped with overhead red signal lights flashing and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the signal lights have stopped flashing. 

When driving on a road without a median, drivers travelling in both directions must stop for a school bus with its lights flashing.  When driving on a road with a median, traffic coming from the opposite direction are not required to stop.

Failing to stop for a school bus can result in a minimum fine of $400 and six demerit points.
