Passing a School Bus in NJ is a very serious offense for which you can
lose your drivers license, go to jail and even perform community service
pass a school bus whenever it is discharging or picking up children.  
The only exception to this rule is if the roadway is separated by a
divider thats it.  Many people feel its ok to pass a school bus if the
children are on the opposite side of the road.  WRONG!  Other people
feel that its ok to pass a school bus if the school bus is stopped for an
extended period of time.  WRONG!  In New Jersey you cannot pass a
school bus anytime it has its yellow or red flashing lights on no matter
how long the bus is stopped for.  Even if you see no children anywhere
in the distance you still must stop and wait, this is because the bus
driver may be required to wait for a child or to assist a disabled child on
the bus.  We understand that some clients tell us that the bus driver
waived at them to go.  This is not a defense in NJ you must stop and
wait until the school bus lights are off.  The bus driver is not a NJ law
enforcement officer and thus cannot give you an exception to the law.
