School is back in session across the U.S. and both drivers and pedestrians should keep these traffic laws in mind.

Drivers must yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk but pedestrians need to yield when trying to cross the street outside of a crosswalk.

If you see a car stopped at a crosswalk to let someone pass, never drive around.

If you see a school bus pulled over with their lights on do not attempt to drive around them.

You must stop at least 10 feet from the bus until the lights are turned off as they could be letting off students, who will be trying to cross the road in front of you.
