Is there a federal law that states that buses have to stop at all railroad crossings?

My school bus stops at every rail road crossing, do they have to do this?

The practice dates back to a time where there were not flashing lights at train crossings. The practice is intended to keep children safe. Federal laws do not need to be enacted when common sense should be in play.

Yes there is. Buses have to follow a lot of strange rules, but they are carrying a lot of people, so that I understand. Buses are not the only type of vehicles that have to stop at all rail road crossings.

There is a law that requires certain types of vehicles to do mandatory stops at all railroad crossings. Among those vehicles are school buses and trucks, transporting dangerous goods. However, this rule doesn't apply to intersity, tourist and municipal passenger buses. Similar laws exist in other countries as well.

I would say yes..... especially if there is a train coming.
