School Bus Fleet
Kelly Aguinaldo writes: "We at SBF are well aware of the problem of motorists illegally passing school buses that are stopped for students who are boarding or disembarking. Another problem that we hadn't heard of is drivers passing a stopped bus, realizing what they'd done and then backing up their car to where they should have stopped. A school bus driver contacted us about this issue, saying that she sees this happen often, and she is concerned about the safety hazards it presents."

Some initially may think or say this appears to be "sci-fi" or "big brother." However, when we stop and think about the importance and possible negligence, to turn our backs seems like a liability.
