thirteen years pass...

Doepsick, episode 5, a schoolbus pulls up to a curb and then some weird yellow thing comes out of the front fender and pivots forward. what's that for?

It's there so kids can safely cross the street without walking through the bus driver's blind spot.

i guess it's to stop kids walking in front of the bus. but it looks ineffective

It's intended to stop other drivers from passing the bus while the children are crossing the street.
