    I've never heard of a national speed limit for school buses.

    IF they're limited at all it's usually because they're governed and the speed is determined on the local level.

    As far as I know school buses can go as fast as other traffic. I have never heard of a national speed limit, either.

    I think that is it right there. Local or State regulations on school buses.

    Seems like Texas has some kind of something for busses. I've seen signs, but I never paid any attention.

    Rabbit, I think You're referring to the limit on how many of the Junior High kids can be spitting their tobacco out the windows at ONE time!

    Yeah, that can be ugly. Especially, if "miss little I'm better than you" is beside the bus in her Cadillac. :rofl:
