"""State law 31-20-12 requires approaching drivers to stop before reaching a school bus whenever the bus is operating flashing red lights. The driver shall not proceed until the bus resumes motion or until the flashing lights are no longer actuated. No driver of any motor vehicle, except emergency vehicles on official business, shall travel in the same lane of traffic behind a school bus at a distance of less than 50 feet. A person convicted of a violation of this section shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $300 and/or suspension of driving license for a period not to exceed 30 days for the first offense, and a mandatory fine of not less than $300 nor more than $500 and/or revocation of driving license for a period of one year for each subsequent offense.

Some school bus companies have equipped their vehicles with cameras to capture license plates of drivers who pass a bus when flashing lights and stop signs are displayed. Law enforcement may issue a summons based on the statement or testimony of a school bus driver or monitor or other private citizen provided that the statement or testimony provides the peace officer with sufficient probable cause that a violation under this section was committed.

In accordance with RIGL 31-20-13, a driver need not stop upon meeting or passing a bus marked as "school bus" when a highway is a divided highway and the bus is stopped in the road on one side of the divided highway and the driver is operating on the other side of it or when the bus is stopped in a loading zone adjacent to a limited access highway and pedestrians are not permitted to cross the highway."""31-20-12 requires approaching drivers to stop before reaching a school bus whenever the bus is operating flashing red lights. The driver shall not proceed until the bus resumes motion or until the flashing lights are no longer
