Steamboat drivers are being reminded to yield to city buses, when they’re trying to merge back into traffic flow. It’s actually a Colorado law, that was created back in 2009. Motorists must yield the right-of-way to transit buses merging into traffic from a bus stop. All Steamboat Springs Transit buses have an illuminated yield light on the back, as a friendly reminder.
