I accidentally passed a school bus today. I didn't realize until I heard it honk that it's lights were on and I was already past it. Does anyone know how often tickets are sent out? Would police officers come to my door? I am freaking out beyond all belief right now and I don't know what to expect. I'm a college student and I don't have much money to pay a ticket which can be between $400-2000. Any advice on what to expect or what to do would be greatly appreciated.

The government provides school bus drivers with a form they can fill out for illegal passing of a school bus. If there is enough information for a charge, an officer will write up a ticket and deliver it to the residence of the registered owner.

The registered owner of the vehicle, which may or may not be the driver, will receive the ticket. They are charged as owner of the vehicle, not the driver.

Is there any time frame on when I would find out? As in when a police officer would deliver the ticket?

They have up to six months to lay a charge. However, if you don't hear anything in the next week or two, you could probably stop worrying.
