Remember that vehicles that transport disabled persons can be equipped as school buses and you must stop for them as you would for other school buses.

What Are the Points, Fines, and Surcharges for Passing a School Bus Ticket in Queens & New York?

Passing a school bus is a very serious violation with serious consequences if you are found guilty. Most people know that you cannot pass a bus when children are getting on or off and the lights are flashing. However, some people do not know that you must stop even on a divided or multi-lane road or highway. Please note that there is no judge that will accept ignorance of the law as a defense. Additionally, you must stop at least 20 feet away from the bus. If you are found guilty of a ticket for passing a school bus while the lights are flashing, your fines will range from $250-$400 for the first violation, $600-$750 for the second (within 3 years) and a third can result in a $750-$1000 fine. If convicted, you will receive 5 points on your license. Additionally, you can be jailed for up to 30 days on the first offense and up to 180 days for subsequent convictions. If you have a ticket for passing a school bus and are convicted, expect a substantial increase in your insurance for three to five years. Since the conviction carries 5 points there is a very good chance you will have surcharges from the NYS DMV too.

My Tickets NYC dealt with my tickets in a very patient and professional manner (even when I didn’t return their calls for days) and I felt comfortable the whole time that they were doing everything they could to help me out and take care of my tickets.
