Local News

INDIANA (WEHT) – In Washington, The Stop for School Buses Act has been introduced.

It requires an evaluation of methods to prevent the illegal passing of school buses at loading zones.

Senators Todd Young, of Indiana and Gary Peters, of Michigan introduced the bill.

This comes after a driver hit and killed three young siblings who were getting on their bus last year in Rochester, Indiana.

Under this plan, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration would be required to identify illegal passing laws in every state, including penalties.

It would also recommend best practices for deterring illegal school bus passing.
