Default What would you do?

You're gonna turn left at a 4-way intersection. A school bus with its lights on pulls up going the opposite way and stops at the intersection. You stop. The bus's lights are no longer blinking and their stop sign is not out. You wait 9 seconds and nothing happens. You know it was 9 seconds because you were singing along to a song and later looked up that song and counted how long the part you were singing was. At this point you assume the bus driver is letting you turn. So you give em the "thank you" wave and start turning. When you're in the middle of the intersection, the bus's lights go on and their stop sign goes out. They lay on their horn for a few seconds until you're far past the intersection.

Who was in the wrong?

I'd have probably done a quick double-flash of my brights and waved them through after 3-4 seconds. If I did that and there was no movement by 7-9 seconds, i'd also assume they were letting me through and would proceed

That's why you simply blow the stop sign before the bus gets there. Fuck a bus!

At that point, I'd say the bus driver is in the wrong.

I tend to get annoyed with them for the most part, but, I understand they deal with a-holes all the time that go past them when the red lights and signage is out.

I had an instance a while back on a big four-lane street with a median. The bus was going opposite of me (for some reason, I was the only car going that direction in that moment) and the driver had signs out, blasted the horn and started yelling at me to stop. Sorry buddy, opposite traffic on busy streets do not stop, unless this is a small two-way road. That is different.

median makes the difference there. If no median, you are supposed to stop no matter how many lanes.

Have had similar done to me with a bus parked on the side of the road. I pulled up slow and stopped for about 5 seconds because the amber lights were on solid. I started rolling forward and all of a sudden the horn went bezerk and she whipped her window open and ripped open the stop sign from the side of the bus by hand. Like don’t the red lights mean stop?

Bus drivers think they own the road.

You could flip it around and call the bus garage to complain. The bus driver is being "unsafe and aggressive". You feared for your life and the kids' lives. That would ruin their day.

False. This actually changed a few years ago. For any 4 lane road with at least 2 lanes in each direction (regardless of median) opposing traffic should not stop even without a median. Bus drivers are not allowed to have kids cross a 4 lane road.

Now it's dangerous when motorists slam on the brakes and stop on a busy road when they shouldn't because they don't know the law.

Legally you must complete the turn one you enter an intersection.

If the stop sign wasn’t out when you entered the intersection you have to complete the turn.
