Did the student cross the road when the STOP sign was deployed? My personal experience of stopping on Street 71 in Mirdif when the school bus deploys its STOP sign is that I get hooted at by the driver tailgating me, and everyone else razzes past the bus in the fast lane.(Rule 209) says to: “Drive carefully and slowly when passing a stationary bus showing a ‘School Bus’ sign,” and Rule 206 includes the note that “…children are more interested in ice cream than traffic…”from international design standards, and similarly cherry-pick the rules for road users.
Drivers from any of 150 or more different nationalities apply their own versions of what is right (and what they can get away with), or have learned from driving instructors who apply their own opinions from their own training and experience.
The minimum salary for teachers in England and Wales is £23,720, or £29,664 in inner London. Starting salaries for teachers are to rise by more than £6,000 under government proposals to reform pay.

Something else borrowed from North America is the swing-out STOP sign.
Whenever a school bus stops and the door is opened to let passengers on or off, a red, octagonal STOP sign swings out and red lights flash.
I was going to have a rant about this a couple of years ago, but decided not to because it seems the legality of and penalty for passing one of these bus-mounted STOP signs depends on which US state you’re in. Reported in 7DAYS, it seems a seventeen-year-old got off her school bus in Dibba Fujairah and was hit by a car. My understanding from the newspaper story, inferred from the bus driver being detained and questioned by the police, is that the bus was at the roadside when the collision occurred. It’s very easy for the police and the courts to come down on the driver who hit a pedestrian crossing the road with a “You passed a school bus showing its STOP sign. You are culpable.” But where is the requirement to stop enshrined in law? Is it a legal requirement in the UAE to stop behind one of these buses?
And no, printing up a list of traffic offences in the local paper does not constitute publishing a Highway Code.
The 2019 Vuelta a Espana is already a week old and in that time we’ve seen plenty of impressive rides and the emergence of several interesting storylines.
What is desperately needed is a federal rule book; a Highway Code, if you will.
With all the rules written down and publicly available, there’s much less scope for wild interpretation.
