NC House Approves School Bus Camera Law

The North Carolina House has approved an effort to increase the Prosecution of drivers who pass stopped school buses.

The legislation, which passed 115-0 on Wednesday and was sent to the Senate, was named for 16-year-old Nicholas Adkins of Stoneville in Rockingham County.

A 60-year-old woman pleaded guilty Tuesday and was sentenced to three years of probation for passing a stopped school bus and killing Adkins.

Judy Earlene Stilwell had a clean record before passing the school bus which had its lights on and stop sign extended.

The bill would let school districts install cameras on stop arms that extend from parked school buses, and allow the resulting photos to be used in prosecuting violators.
