BILL NUMBER:S1878 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to increasing the penalties for passing a stopped school bus PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To increase the penalties for passing a stopped school bus. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends subdivision c of section 1174 of the Vehicle and Traf- fic Law to allow for additional penalties for an individual convicted of passing a stopped school bus. Section 2: Amends paragraph b of subdivision 2 of section 510 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law to include a new subparagraph (xvi) which provides for a sixty day suspension of an individual's drivers' license when the holder is convicted two or more times of passing a stopped school bus within a period of ten years. Section 3: Effective date. JUSTIFICATION: Current law provides that an individual convicted two or more times of speeding in a construction zone be subject to a sixty day suspension of his or her drivers' license. Passing a stopped school bus two or more times however, does not currently carry such a penalty.
