Notes of Decisions

   Separate Roadways

   Two painted yellow lines which separate the northbound and southbound lanes of a highway do not create ‘‘separate roadways’’ as contemplated by 75 Pa.C.S. §  3345(g). A driver on such a highway, approaching an oncoming school bus with its red signal lights flashing, must stop as required by the Motor Vehicle Code. Commonwealth v. Russell, 784 A.2d 165 (Pa. Super. 2001); appeal denied at 796 A.2d 981 (Pa. 2002).
