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

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 Gardian Angel was field tested at Bryant (Ark.) Public Schools. Arkansas is now the 15th state to allow the lighting system.

    We so need these in Rhode Island! The Winter mornings are dark and cold.The snow blinds the drivers ability to see the student on the side of the road.This would be a wonderful improvement!!
