The Maryland State Highway Administration removed a school bus safety graphic from its website Thursday morning after The Herald-Mail questioned the accuracy of the graphic. The graphic was part of the agency’s Web page titled “Kids, the School Bus and You.” It featured five images showing different traffic scenarios and indicating when other vehicles should stop for a school bus. The image removed from the website showed a bus stopped on a five-lane road with a center turning lane — like the newly widened Maugans Avenue — but the graphic incorrectly indicated that only traffic going the same direction as the bus was required to stop.
