Louisiana State Police issued a reminder to Louisiana motorists to “drive with care and be especially aware of school zone speed limits, school buses loading or unloading children, and children walking or biking to school.” Most school zones and reduced speed limits are in effect from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Louisiana State Police also remind Louisiana motorists that they must stop not less than thirty feet from a stopped school bus and wait for the bus lights to be turned off before proceeding. Passing a stopped school bus that is picking up or dropping off a child can result in substantial violations including suspension of your driver’s license.
