Nassau County To Launch School Bus Safety Program

Patch.com, New York, January 14, 2020

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced Tuesday the county will be rolling out a program which will enable school districts to install new bus cameras to identify drivers who illegally pass a bus stopped to drop off and pick up children.

“My main priority is to ensure the health and safety of our residents, especially young people. The School Bus Safety program will give Nassau’s school districts the option to install new bus cameras which will help us stop the dangerous practice of recklessly passing a school bus when the stop sign is extended,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.
