The Gardian Angel safety lighting system has been allowed for use on school buses in Colorado.

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.

Colorado is the seventh state to allow the Gardian Angel system. Nevada, North Carolina, Vermont, Michigan, Wyoming and Mississippi also allow the Gardian Angel system.

Colorado's specifications allow Gardian Angel’s 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. The specs do not allow red strobes on the system.
