WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — With so many school buses back on the roads starting early Monday morning, local law enforcement agencies have sent out reminders to drivers informing them when to stop for school buses.

The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office posted this on their Facebook page.

It's against the law for any driver to pass a school bus when it has a stop signal out.

On a two-way street or highway, all drivers moving in either direction must stop for a bus picking up or dropping off kids.

Also, if the highway is divided by a barrier or an unpaved median at least five feet wide, you do not have to stop if you are moving in the opposite direction.
