Nationally nearly 80,000 cars ran school bus stop arms each day, according to a study conducted by the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services. Not only is this illegal, but it can also lead to serious injury or death.
Chesapeake Public Schools recently implemented a Stop-Arm program with BusPatrol and Zonar hardware and software to designed to reduce the number of Stop Arm violations. The program was put into action this fall.
In the first 12 days of the program, more than 470 stop arm violations were recorded by BusPatrol in the Chesapeake school district.
