Yesterday while passing through a school zone, I stopped behind a parked schoolbus. When the bus driver retracted the stop sign I proceeded around the buss. At that moment another driver bringing their child to the bus stop pulled up and the driver opened the door to the bus to admit the school child. I am concerned that I will be issued a ticket for passing a stopped school bus.

You are required by Georgia law to stop your vehicle behind a parked school bus with its stop sign extended. When the stop sign is retracted you are permitted to continue on your journey.

If you were issued a ticket at that time, you would have reasonable grounds to argue that you are not guilty of the violation. Many school buses in Georgia carry video cameras that would either support your situation or support an argument against it.

If you had issues with failure to stop for school bus, contact traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, GA.  770-408-1001
