Bipartisan push needed to protect children in North Carolina
from Winston-Salem Journal
A panel of a Child Fatality Task Force has approved a plan put forward by North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper that could well help reduce the number of children who are being injured or killed by careless drivers who passed stopped school buses. The state legislature and Cooper should put aside politics to get this plan passed. The Unintentional Death Committee of lawmakers, safety advocates and health professionals recently backed Cooper’s plan to attach more cameras to school buses to prevent child injuries and deaths from passing cars, The Associated Press reported. The full task force is expected to approve the plan this month, but then it would still have to pass the legislature in bill form.
