NHTSA Proposes Studies to Collect Illegal School Bus Passing Data
Sep 13, 2020
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has proposed a collection of information for two studies — one on motorists’ knowledge of laws that prohibit passing stopped school buses and another on stop-arm camera effectiveness.
The first study would be based on an online survey designed to collect information from motorists across the U.S. to assess their “knowledge of and attitudes towards laws regarding the passing of stopped school buses, as well as their opinions on the safest driver behaviors when encountering a school bus on the roadway,” according to a notice (docket No. NHTSA–2020–0018) that NHTSA published in the Federal Register on Sunday.
