More than 15 million drivers endanger children by illegally passing a school bus throughout a 180-day school year, according to the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services.
School bus stop arm cameras are proven to positively change driver behavior and enhance road safety by reducing accidents that occur when drivers pass school buses with their stop arm extended.
This program helps to protect volunteer firefighters by offering financial support should they receive a cancer diagnosis, while keeping costs low for taxpayers and the program responsive to recovery needs. NYSAC has worked with other statewide municipal associations (the Association of Towns and the Conference of Mayors) and fire service associations (FASNY, AFDSNY, and the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs) to develop and sponsor the program.
