The Gardian Angel safety lighting system is now allowed for use on school buses in Ohio.
The system, created by former school bus mechanic Steve Gardner, uses a white flood light at the front of the bus to illuminate the path for students to cross the street and to make the students more visible to motorists.
Ohio is the 17th state to allow the lighting system as optional school bus equipment.
The Gardian Angel light turns on automatically when the school bus’s red lights are activated, and it turns off when the entrance door is closed. Gardner said Ohio specified that the white LED light be mounted under the bus, whereas other states require it to be mounted on the front bumper.
