Extended stop arms OK to use on Indiana school buses, attorney general says
from NWI Times
The state board that sets safety standards for Indiana school buses can authorize the use of an extra-long stop arm that extends into oncoming traffic, according to Attorney General Curtis Hill Jr. A school bus stop arm typically opens outward 18 inches from the side of a school bus. The extended stop arm, already in use in other states, sticks out between 4 1/2 to 6 1/2 feet to essentially block vehicles from illegally passing the bus.
