Q&A - Honk Before Backing Up?
Curious if you know if it is required by law for a school bus to honk when backing up. Reason I ask is the local school bus has chosen in front of my house as the drop and pickup point for 2 kids that live 1/2 a mile up the road. Not an issue, except every morning at 7 she lays on the horn and wakes me up.
After 10 yrs of this I asked her nicely if she could refrain from the horn in the mornings. As I expected, she said no can do, its the law.
The bus also has a backup alarm, and its the middle of nowhere with very little, if not any traffic.
Other thing I find interesting, is she backs up through an intersection to turn around.
Not a big deal, just thought you might know what the actual law is.
