City & State NY School Bus Safety Forum

New York, NY 12/03/2019

New York Coalition for Transportation Safety Executive Director, Cindy Brown, took part in a panel, Stop-Arm Cameras: The Key to Slowing Down Illegal Bus Passes. 

"According to a recent study, over 50,000 drivers across New York State illegally pass a stopped school bus every day. This sobering statistic highlights the real risk students face and a nightmare for parents. Recent legislation passed in Albany allows school districts and municipalities to adopt stop-arm camera enforcement programs to identify, track and fine motorists that illegally pass stopped school buses during drop-off and pick-up. The New York City Council has proposed legislation that would require every school bus in the city to be equipped with stop-arm cameras."

 

Panelists discussed this proposal and the potential for it to dramatically improve the safety of the hundreds of thousands of children who rely on school buses to get to school and back home each day.
