(a) The driver of a vehicle meeting or overtaking from either direction any church bus or day care program bus stopped on the highway shall stop before reaching such church bus or day care program bus when there is in operation on said church bus or day care program bus the flashing red lights specified in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 8-1730, and said driver shall not proceed until such church bus or day care program bus resumes motion or said driver is signaled by the church bus or day care program bus driver to proceed or the flashing red lights and stop signal arm, if any, are no longer actuated.
(b) If a church bus or day care program bus is equipped with visual signals permitted by subsection (b) of K.S.A. 8-1730a, such signals may be actuated by the driver of said church bus or day care program bus only when such vehicle is stopped on the highway for the purpose of receiving or discharging passengers.
