Mich. bill calls for lower rear bus lights

Posted on March 29, 2012

LANSING, Mich. — State lawmakers are considering legislation that would add a new, lower level of bright flashing rear lights on new Michigan school buses, WZZM reports.

Nancee Privacky told lawmakers Wednesday that her daughter, Antonia, would have been 14 years old this week if she had not been in her brother’s car when it smashed into the back of a stopped school bus last December. Antonia’s brother Bruce was also killed.

The legislation was met with no opposition Wednesday. If passed, it will be known as the Privacky Law.

    Today was the first day of school here in S.W. lower Michigan. A bus was stopped, had it's tail lights flashing red as well as the bright white light on top flashing. The other red stop lights above the back door were not flashing nor the yellow lights above the door. Why were the tail lights flashing? I stopped anyway, not knowing what to do.
