(A)   Overtaking stopped bus; prohibited.  The driver of a vehicle shall not overtake or meet and pass any school bus which has stopped for the purpose of receiving or discharging passengers.
   (B)   Stopping for bus; resumption of motion; passengers; controlling intersections.  The driver of a vehicle overtaking or meeting any school bus which has stopped and is displaying two alternatingly flashing red lights located at the same level shall bring the vehicle to a full stop at least ten feet from the school bus and shall not proceed until the school bus resumes motion or the school bus driver signals to proceed or the visual signals are no longer actuated. The driver of the school bus, before resuming motion, shall signal stopped traffic to proceed and shall, when resuming motion, proceed in such a manner as to allow congested traffic to disburse by keeping the bus as near to the right side of the road as can be done with safety. Passengers crossing the road upon being discharged from a school bus shall cross in front of the stopped school bus. At an intersection where traffic is controlled by an officer or a traffic stop and go signal, a vehicle need not be brought to a full stop before passing any school bus, but may proceed past the school bus at a speed not greater than is reasonable and proper and in no event greater than ten mph and with due caution for the safety of passengers being received or discharged from the school bus.
   (C)   Visibility of bus in stopped position.  No school bus driver shall stop his or her bus for the purpose of receiving or discharging passengers unless the bus is clearly visible in its stopped position to approaching or overtaking drivers of vehicles for a distance of at least 500 feet.
   (D)   Divided highway.  The driver of a vehicle upon any highway which has been divided into two roadways by leaving an intervening space, by a physical barrier or clearly indicated dividing sections so constructed as to impede vehicular traffic, need not stop upon meeting a school bus which has stopped across the dividing space, barrier or section.
   (E)   Signs erected.  Signs shall be erected giving notice of the regulations provided for in this section and shall be posted upon or at the entrance of any area or part thereof to be affected in such a way as to be sufficiently legible by an ordinarily observant person.
