Each year, an average of 24 school-age children die in accidents related to school transportation, according to the NHTSA. States have passed many laws to make sure drivers behave themselves around school buses. Violate these laws and your driving record will pay the price.

In Maryland, you'll end up with three points on your record for failing to stop when a school vehicle's lights are flashing alternately. In Michigan, passing a stopped school bus will get you four points; in Texas, it's five.
