Ohio bill proposes harsher penalties to drivers who pass stopped school buses
State Sen. Theresa Gavarone, R-Bowling Green, introduced the "School Bus Safety Act" at the Ohio Statehouse. The legislation would bring more awareness to school bus safety issues and increase penalties for people who violate laws designed to protect students. Gavarone says between 2015 and 2017, there were 4,000 accidents involving a school bus and 4,200 drivers cited for failing to stop for a school bus that was loading or unloading children.
