WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFFT) - A bill making its way through the U.S. Senate would require a comprehensive evaluation to prevent people from illegally passing school bus stop arms.
Senator Todd Young introduced the "Stop for School Buses Act" Monday.
The proposal will require the National Highway Transportation Safety Board to look at every state's stop arm violation laws, including penalties and see how effective they are.
The NHTSB would also look at drivers education courses and see if improvements can be made there.
In Indiana, stop arm violators could have their license suspended under a new law taking effect July 1.
