SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE APPROVES LEGISLATION TO RAISE PENALTIES FOR DRIVERS WHO ILLEGALLY PASS STOPPED SCHOOL BUSES

        Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation Committee, today announced that the Committee has passed legislation to raise the penalties for drivers who illegally pass stopped school buses.

        “Drivers are required to stop for school buses with red lights flashing in order to protect the children boarding or exiting the bus. Illegally passing a stopped school bus jeopardizes the lives and safety of the students on the bus. Stronger fines and penalties will create a greater deterrent and give drivers another incentive not to pass stopped school buses,” said Senator Fuschillo.
