Slow down to 40km/h when bus lights flash

Council is partnering with Transport NSW to remind motorists to slow down to 40km/h when passing a bus with flashing lights.

Motorists are urged to look out for children who are crossing the road or waiting to cross. Lights flash on buses to warn motorists that buses are picking up and dropping off children.

By law, a driver must not overtake or pass a bus with flashing lights at more than 40km/h. Lights begin to flash when the bus stops and the doors open, and they keep flashing for about 20 seconds after the doors close. Children are most at risk in the minutes after they get off the bus.

Young children are often unpredictable in their movements. They are still developing the skills that help them to judge the direction of sound and the speed and distance of vehicles.

For more information, please contact Council’s Road Safety Officer, Graham Hope, in our Berridale office on 1300 345 345.
