You don’t always have to stop when the lights are flashing

ORC 4511.75 Stopping for stopped school bus.
A) The driver of a vehicle, streetcar, or trackless trolley upon meeting or overtaking from either direction any school bus stopped for the purpose of receiving or discharging any school child, person attending programs offered by community boards of mental health and county boards of mental retardation and developmental disabilities, or child attending a program offered by a head start agency, shall stop at least ten feet from the front or rear of the school bus and shall not proceed until such school bus resumes motion, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.

It is no defense to a charge under this division that the school bus involved failed to display or be equipped with an automatically extended stop warning sign as required by division (B) of this section.

(C) Where a highway has been divided into four or more traffic lanes, a driver of a vehicle, streetcar, or trackless trolley need not stop for a school bus approaching from the opposite direction which has stopped for the purpose of receiving or discharging any school child, persons attending programs offered by community boards of mental health and county boards of mental retardation and developmental disabilities, or children attending programs offered by head start agencies. The driver of any vehicle, streetcar, or trackless trolley overtaking the school bus shall comply with division (A) of this section.

(D) School buses operating on divided highways or on highways with four or more traffic lanes shall receive and discharge all school children, persons attending programs offered by community boards of mental health and county boards of mental retardation and developmental disabilities, and children attending programs offered by head start agencies on their residence side of the highway.


Have it your way out of my way
If you are traveling southbound on Brandt (SR 201) and wish to patronize the Burger King on the southeast corner of Brandt and Harshman, do us all a favor and turn left onto Harshman and then take an immediate right into Burger King. It’s quicker (the left turn lane gets the light first), safer, and more convenient both to you and everyone trying to go south on Brandt.


One last thing
If you are bound and determined to have an accident (and it seems like far too many Dayton area drivers do have a death wish), please make a concentrated effort to keep me out of it. I have no desire to die anytime soon. If you want to kill yourself in a horrible, bloody traffic accident that makes the local news, I don’t have a problem with that. More power to you. But please don’t take me or anyone in my family with you. And your vehicle will not fit into the bed of my S-10 so don’t even try. In other words, BACK OFF!
