I passed a school bus that was slowing down to stop with

I passed a school bus that was slowing down to stop with flashing red lights just started but the stop sign arm was not extended until well after I was past the bus by several car lengths and I saw the stop arm get extended in the rear view mirrorJA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: 2015 Honda fit, michiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No this just happened a couple hours ago before 5 p.m.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Does this cost anything and the answer would be I have a couple points on my license. Also insurance points for hitting a pothole at night and hitting a barrel at night in the rain both requiring repairs. I cannot afford the new insurance I had to get. The school bus today did have flashing red lights but it was still moving. Like I say I was well ahead of the bus when the stop sign arm was extended. I don't know where the cameras are. Meanwhile some guy behind me had been honking and gesturing for me to go round the bus at a previous stop. Then the bus stopped without any lights at all. Then the bus slowed down as I say and I went round it, but no stop sign extended as I say until I was way around it driving on.

I had a question concerning criminal law. 2 days ago I was

Hello, I had a question concerning criminal law. 2 days ago I was driving on a busy*****and stopped at a red light. As I started to move forward when the light turned greeb, a large red pickup truck behind me tapped my rear bumper and pushed me slightly forward. I felt it and was surprised. I kept driving and looked in my rear view mirror. The driver of the truck gave no indication of acknowledging the accident and did not attempt to signal me or pull over. I did not pull over either as the road was busy, the drover of the other vehicle struck me as aggressive, and the tap was reletively minor and I assumed my car had no real damage. The red truck eventually sped past me and left down a side road. Once I reached my destination i examined my car and there was no damage. Now, 2 days later, im worried i did not do the right thing. Did i break a law by not pulling over right away? Did I commit any kind of hit and run?
