The illuminated stop sign and school bus sign were added to 2 of our buses with the highest number of stop arm violations. The buses we chose not only experienced the highest number of stop arm violations but were also rural routes with multilane roads. The roads are extremely busy and are early morning routes when the sun has not risen yet. Since the systems were installed the violations have been cut in half. The systems allow drivers to see the bus earlier than prior to the systems being on the buses. I believe this leads to increased safety of our riders and students while boarding and exiting the bus.
