The Illinois Vehicle Code prohibits drivers from passing a loading or unloading school bus. Violation of the statute can result in fines of up to $500 and license suspension. Repeat violators face potential license suspension of up to five years. Illinois lawmakers, police officers, and judges take these offenses very seriously and penalties will be strictly enforced. If you have been ticketed for passing a loading or unloading school bus, you should retain a Chicago traffic lawyer to investigate the circumstances surrounding your citation and advocate on your behalf.
