Grant Reppert, director of transportation for Gwinnett schools, assured me that I had done no wrong. "On a divided highway of four lanes, with median, the driver going in the opposite direction as the school bus does not have to stop," he told me.
However, if the bus is stopped on a two lane road, "All traffic must stop, unless the vehicle is on the opposite side of divided highway," he emphasized. "It's just that simple."
There's reason Georgia law, and the national rules, is written that way: pure safety for the school children. Reppert continues: "Unfortunately in one recent year, Georgia led the entire country in student fatalities.
Reppert, who has directed the Gwinnett bus fleet for the last 12 years, has buses which haul an average of 122,000 students each day. That's the second most in the nation, behind only New York City, which transports 175,000 students on average.
The system transports this many students with 1,850 buses running every school day, most of them making three trips each morning and afternoon. By the way, he must keep 100 spare buses to augment the fleet when repairs are necessary.
Reppert knows his buses. He's an retired Army logician, who came to Gwinnett from Washington, D.C. when he meet his wife, who is from Gwinnett.
Devising a plan for picking up and returning the Gwinnett students is not done easily. Reppert says: "We deliberately in Gwinnett route around lot of circumstances, so don't have kids crossing on four lane roads. When a child is crossing a four lane road, that child is in the most danger."
He adds: "As a rule, the only time we allow the kids to cross a road is if they live in subdivisions, and we even limit this."
Reppert adds: "The problem is that they are still kids.
