Stopping for School Buses

School bus safety is always a concern, especially now that winter break is almost over with kids going back to school next week. It’s important to know and understand the law about stopping for school buses so you can help keep kids safe and avoid getting a ticket.

Under Tennessee law, you are required to stop when school bus lights are flashing, even if you’re traveling in the opposite direction.

There have been an increasing number of complaints from parents and other bystanders, especially on social media, who witness drivers who don’t stop for buses picking up or dropping off children.

In Tennessee, passing a stopped school bus can get you a fine of anywhere from $250 to $1,000.

If you need legal advice, you deserve serious lawyers who know how to win. Call (865) 691-2777 or visit brownandroberto.com today.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"We tried to go through the insurance company ourselves, but they basically just laughed at us. So I got in touch with The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto. The insurance company's attitude really changed, and within a week we had our car replaced and rehabilitation going for my wife. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto stuck in there and fought for us." J. Felver
★★★★★
"Had it not been for The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto, I would be in a mess. I would not have been able to handle the paper work or things that would have been required to stand in a court of law myself. They got the most that I could have gotten for any injury that I had. I was more than pleased with the settlement. They handled my case promptly and very professionally." D. Blakeman
★★★★★
"I would recommend The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto because they are for the client. They are extremely tough when they go to court, they keep you well informed, and they treat you as a person. They are extremely good attorneys. They changed my life. They helped my life because they believed in me. They fought for me. I thank God for them." C. Scarbrough
