Do buses have to stop at railroad tracks when they are empty of children?

Just curious.

  • Yes. My Mother is a CDL tester and that is the most common thing that people fail when taking the test. It does not matter whether the bus is empty or not they must stop at all rail road crossings.

  • Yes! At least, that's what i was told when I did a ride-along with a bus driver once a few years ago.

  • Yes. They also have to open the door and look up the tracks. (I get stuck by one every morning when I take my son to school!)
