To remove the requirement that a driver stop a transit vehicle as far to the right side of the roadway as practicable and a driver is instead required to stop a transit vehicle in a safe and practicable position. The requirement that the transit driver only consider vehicles approaching from the same direction when determining where to stop a transit vehicle such that there is an unobstructed view for an adequate distance is also removed, so that the transit driver must now consider vehicles approaching from either direction.
