The Gardian Angel safety lighting system is now allowed for use on school buses in Idaho.

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.

Gardner said that the lighting system was field tested in Idaho for two years. With the addition of Idaho, 14 states now allow Gardian Angel.

To see the system in operation on a school bus from Idaho’s Teton State Lines, watch the video below.
