WNCN is sharing this footage to raise awareness of the problem of illegal bus passing.
This is a six lane road. No child would be crossing it... I've wondered about situations like this. I live in NC and almost no one stops for a school bus when they're on the opposite side of the road, on the four lane I frequently drive. It seems silly to do so because it's obvious that the children won't be crossing four lanes of traffic. Occasionally I see someone stop and it causes confusion and makes some people upset. I wonder what the law is?
why is the door opened while bus is still rolling? and we still want cars to stop?
The problem is all over the country and is really sad. Here in N.Y. state to land a conviction, the school has to posativley ID the driver even if the car and plate are clearly videotaped. I don't know about you, but I drive my own car, not some random person. I do agree change has to be made, people should be held accountable for their actions and that of their vehicle. I would love to see the police present the violaters with the summons in a public and embarassing way. Maybe make them stand on the main corner with a sandwich board stating " I passed a stopped bus like an idiot ". It has been done before for lesser crimes.
WOW!!! It looks so modest. When you count the cars in both directions ignoring the lights that is a lot of vehicles. That is a lot of unheeded warning, and massive potential danger for our children.
What if for a week, the tags of every car passing the bus was ticketed? Maybe it would be enough for the local paper to pick it up and for that drivers community maybe a change would happen. I know I would not be just sitting in the drivers seat but contacting the local authorities with the video to try to make a way to "make change" and open the eyes of the drivers in that area.
