Have You Seen Cars Illegally Pass School Buses? Putting Our Kids at Risk!
We need to show drivers who think they can get away with passing a school bus that they are being watched...Sadly, this might be the only we get them to stop ~ Sen. Jim Holzapfel
It's a problem that could lead to a tragedy! Kids getting on/off the school bus and a driver illegally passes without waiting for the children to be clear of traffic. I have seen it ... have you ?
This week Senator Jim Holzapfel (R-10) announced that the State Senate has passed his bill (S-211) The legislation establishes a pilot program for municipalities and school districts to use video monitoring systems to help enforce laws against illegally passing a school bus.
Camera systems will allow police departments and school districts to consistently identify and cite drivers who break the law. The legislation requires that a police officer review recorded footage to determine when a citation should be issued.
