Bill to increase penalties for passing school buses in New York passes Senate
A pair of bills unanimously passed the Senate that would increase penalties if you decide to pass a stopped school bus. The Association backs these bills a 100 percent and say a lot of the violations law enforcement see are a lack of knowledge. If a school bus is stopped on one side of the road, traffic on both sides must stop. The group hopes these bills will help reinforce that message. "Where you had a number around nearly 50,000 drivers who pass a stop sign school bus every day, those numbers have declined down into the 40's," Al Roney, Spokesman for the New York School Bus Contractors Association, said.
