Development of a System to Report School Bus Stop-Arm Violations

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  11/22/2022


School bus stop arm violations represent a direct and serious risk to pupils boarding and exiting school buses. Currently, these events are typically captured to enable reactive law enforcement involvement. However, inconsistency in collection and aggregation can make it difficult to analyze this data to develop proactive safety, enforcement, and education efforts. This research will establish and evaluate a system for collecting counts and descriptions of school bus stop arm violations to provide timely and actionable data that will increase pupil safety through improved safety practices and proactive enhancements to enforcement and education efforts.
