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

The system, created by former school bus mechanic Steve Gardner, uses a white LED 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.

Delaware is the 21st state to allow the lighting system as optional school bus equipment. In January, Arizona became the 20th state to approve the lighting system.

The Gardian Angel light automatically turns on when the red lights are activated and turns off when the entrance door of the bus is closed.
