Designed to convey to oncoming motorists the importance of the cargo the school bus is carrying. First Light’s Illuminated School Bus Signs (ISBS) are visual warning lights that replace the conventional decals and back-lit signs. By upgrading the visibility of the words SCHOOL BUS to the same level as lights on emergency vehicles, the ISBS makes your school bus stand out from all other large vehicles on the road.
