School Bus and Pedestrian Safety

“Slow down to 40 when bus lights flash – see a new video clip:


School buses pick up and drop off children on roads all across NSW.  Buses use signs and flashing lights to warn drivers that they are picking up and dropping off children.  You must slow down to 40km/hr when bus lights flash and look out for children crossing the road.  Be Bus Aware and help keep our kids safe.”
