New School Bus Radar System Would Help Prevent Tragedies
New safety equipment for school buses is being tested in five states, including the Clark-Pleasant School Corporation, which serves Whiteland, New Whiteland, Franklin and Greenwood. The "Predictive Stop Arm" gives a verbal warning with flashing lights when a vehicle gets too close to the bus while the stop arm is out. It can be integrated with existing bus cameras to capture license plates of vehicles that pass the stop arm. Read more here.
