Drivers Will Receive a Ticket if They Don't Stop for School Buses

You'll notice a Change on Wisconsin School Buses starting today.

Every school bus built after 2004 must now have amber warning lights.

CBS 58 joined crews at a Milwaukee bus lot as they installed those new lights.

The amber lights are basically a warning that the bus is about to stop.

When you see those amber lights go on you can slowly pass if it's safe to do so.

But once the red lights go on you have to stop at least 20 feet away from the bus.

If you don't you could get a $326 ticket and four points on your driving record.
