Hello,

I need your help as soon as possible.
Today, I was on a highway with two lanes for each direction. I drove for 10 km on that highway. Then, I saw a school bus (no kids inside it) in front of me
I keep enough distance between us until We reach a cross section with coiled traffic sign which was not working. The driver of the school bus gave a sign to turn to the left. I was behind him in that moment. I have a look over the bus's overhead red lights and I found then not flashing. The same thing with the stop arm. I waited for 10 second then I drove to the right lane and passed him.

I dont know if my action was right or not because there were two cars behind the bus after I passed. These two cars stopped until the bus turn to the left then they moved.

Please let me know if I am going to charge for that.

Thank you so much.

The school bus did not have it's flashing red lights on so you are allowed to pass it. Also while normally you are not supposed to pass a vehicle on the right hand side, section 150(1) of the Highway Traffic Act allows you to pass a on the right when the vehicle you are passing is making a left hand turn. So in short it looks like you didn't do anything wrong.

It might be a good time to brush up on some of the rules of the road. Either buy an Ontario Drivers handbook or just read the HTA.

Thank you Decatur for your assistance.
