I. Loading and unloading passengers
Loading and unloading passengers at traffic-signal lights

When loading or unloading at traffic-signal lights, do not activate the upper, alternating red flashing lights and stop arm on the school bus. The stop should be made as close as possible to the intersection, close to the curb or edge of the roadway, and the passengers cautioned to obey the traffic-signal lights.

If a driver needs to stop near an intersection with traffic-signal lights and use the flashing red lights and stop arm, the stop should be made at least 60 metres from the intersection.
