I am a schoolteacher and I was ticket for passing a stopped school bus. Aside from the embarrassment, I truly did not see the extended stop sign.
What are my options?
I answered the above question by telling her what I usually tell all my clients accused of this violation.
"This charge is defensible."
Focusing on the stop sign on a school bus is difficult when encountering a bus slowing or stopping with school children and other pedestrians nearby. Drivers frequently concentrate their vision on people rather than objects.
Often the stop sign is missed.
Always drive slowly in congested areas. Observe nearby pedestrians, obstacles and vehicles carefully. This is especially true in areas near schools or in school zones.
Be careful to not miss any of the details Many details are taking place at the same time in this scenario.
