Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, Urges Passage of The School Bus Camera Safety Act.
Utica, NY, June 16, 2015: Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman, has posted a new article on the law offices website entitled “Keep Our Children Safe by Passing The School Bus Camera Safety Act.”
Pearlman shares statistics from NYSED.gov, which states that “approximately 2.3 million pupils, or 10% of the nation’s pupils ride our 50,000 school buses each day.” Pearlman adds, “With the school year coming to a close, more school buses are on the roads than ever as they transport students to a variety of fun-filled educational and sporting events and school field trips.”
“With our state transporting 10% of our nation’s students on school buses,” says Pearlman, “it is critical that our state legislators be urged to pass a bill that is in the works in Albany. The School Bus Camera Safety Act would allow school districts to use cameras on school buses and issue tickets to drivers who violate the law.”
Pearlman quotes State Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I-Olean) who introduced the legislation as saying, “The number of school buses that are passed illegally each day is startling and something must be done to protect innocent children who are traveling to and from school.” Young continues stating, “Far too often these drivers are never caught for committing such a dangerous violation and students are continually put in harm’s way. This bill would bring these drivers to justice and prevent them from getting away with such egregious crimes.”
According to the School Bus Camera Safety Act, says Pearlman, “The cameras would turn on once the stop arm of the bus is extended when the bus comes to a stop to pick up or let off students. Images of the car and license plate would be captured and used to issue a ticket to the registered owner of the car.” “Currently,” adds Pearlman, “a ticket can only be issued by a police officer witnessing the violation.”
