An announcement from the School Bus Drivers of Arizona
Statistics show that school buses are one of the safest modes of transportation in America, yet disregard for the law concerning when to stop for a school bus continues to cause accidents and, in many cases, even death.
Seventeen school districts in Arizona chose one day, in the Spring of 2011, to have drivers record and report any instances of motorists illegally passing their school buses. Drivers reported 1,450 violations among 400 buses that participated.
This is the first Public Service Announcement for the State of Arizona. I would like to thank American Traffic Solutions (ATS), a Scottsdale-based company and leading provider of technology and business solutions for road safety camera and electronic toll enforcement programs, for producing the videos.
