Student bus passengers are most vulnerable when they are in the loading zone to board or exit. School bus stop arm violations are a local and nation-wide concern. HPS is seeking to install surveillance equipment on six route buses in an effort to increase safety and enforcement for stop arm violations. Your donation will help fund this project, which will require funding of approximately $12,500.
