School bus crossing light allowed in 2 more states

Posted on January 19, 2015

The Gardian Angel safety lighting system has been allowed for use on school buses in Nebraska and New Jersey.

The system, created by former school bus mechanic Steve Gardner, uses a white flood light mounted on the bus’ front bumper to illuminate the path for students to cross the street and to make the students more visible to motorists.

Nebraska and New Jersey are the eighth and ninth states, respectively, to allow the Gardian Angel system.

Both states’ specifications allow Gardian Angel’s white light illuminating the left side of the front of the school bus, or dual white lights illuminating both sides of the front of the school bus. They do not allow red strobes on the system.
