When you are approaching the bus, the requirement to stop depends on how many lanes are on the road.
If you see a stopped school bus with the lights on and the stop arm out on road with three or fewer lanes, you must always stop, no matter if you are approaching the bus or behind the bus.
On a road with four or more lanes, if you come up from behind and see a stopped school bus with lights on and the stop arm out, you must stop. If you are coming toward the bus on a road with four or more lanes, you do not have to stop.
