At RR crossing: School bus meeting is OK, passing is not

Email News Alerts

Question: Reference one of your last articles on "passing a school bus that is stopped at a railroad crossing" they said they "met" a bus at the crossing. They did not come up behind it. If you "meet" a school bus and it does not have the arm out or lights flashing you would be able to continue on your way just as this person said they did. I agree that if you come up behind it at a crossing you cannot pass but that was not the case here.
