Indiana: Parents champion bill (SB 2) after 3 kids killed in crash at school bus stop

In the aftermath of the crash, state Sen. Randy Head, a Logansport Republican, has filed a bill. “What it’s going to do is raise penalties for drivers who violate school bus stop signs, flashing lights and stop arms.”

Head said his bill would mandate that no child would have to cross a state highway to get to a school bus unless there is no alternative. The lawmaker said the bill would also allow schools to petition to reduce speed limits around bus stops. He said he going to think about adding language that involves putting cameras on stop arms of Indiana school buses.
