School bus crossing light allowed in 4 more states

Posted on February 14, 2015

The Gardian Angel safety lighting system is now allowed for use on school buses in Wisconsin, Missouri, Texas and Alaska.

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.

With the recent additions, 13 states now allow the Gardian Angel system.

Missouri and Texas specifications will not allow the red strobes on the system, but they do allow the 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.

Wisconsin and Alaska allow all of Gardian Angel’s current product lines.

    I do not care for the flashing red strobes at the front. I think society is getting carried away with strobing lights. I would prefer to see lower mounted alternating red lights, in sync with the overheads, if we need any low mounted lights. I would hope that states that allow this would allow an alternative to the out of sync, strobing lights.
