Keep Kids Safe: It's the Law in New York State 

In 2019, the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS) released data from their annual national survey indicating that more than 17 million stop-arm violations occur in the United States each year. On August 6, 2019, Governor Cuomo signed legislation (S.4524B/A.4950B) authorizing school districts to install safety cameras on school buses in order to catch drivers who unlawfully pass a stopped school bus and ensure the safety of New York's students. The City of Long Beach has launched a School Bus Safety Program to reduce the illegal passing of school buses and improve student safety.
