CHEYENNE, Wy.(KGWN)- As bus violations by drivers continue across the state, a new bill under review this legislative session is aimed at making changes for who is held responsible of violations.
Senate File 59 will amend passing a school bus laws. The measure will change language to clarify automatically holding owners of the vehicle or primary operation responsible.
If passed, this measure means when a driver commits this bus violation Police will presume that the owner or primary operator was the driver at the time of the violation. Police will then automatically issue a citation for the incident to that person.
By law in Wyoming all school district buses must be equipped with cameras.
The bill is sponsored by Senator Jeff Wasserburger of Campbell/Converse County.
The measure will be under consideration once the 2018 session begins on February 12.
