[Drivers] should check the crossover mirrors first, convex mirrors and then the flat mirrors. If they look carefully, count kids and see the same number walking away from the bus or waiting for the bus to leave, they will be okay.”


—Ryan Hahn, Director of Transportation for Clackamass (Oregon) School District, on the role driver training continues to play in managing safe school bus stops


we are in the final validation phase before putting the system into the field,” he reported. Student detection systems are required in New Jersey by Abigail’s


Law, named for a 2-year-old toddler who was struck and killed by a school bus, because the driver could not see her standing at the front bumper. Abigail’s Law has required sensors or camera systems to detect pedestrians around the perimeter of every newly manu- factured school bus since April 18 of this year. Understandably, demand for student detection systems has risen sharply since the law went into effect. Te Rosco 360-degree camera system is in use as a child de- tection system by at least six school districts and private carriers throughout New Jersey. Rostra Precision Systems, meanwhile, offers a student detection system in New Jersey and elsewhere that


uses microwaves to detect movement within the danger zone and notifies the driver with a beeping sound. School districts that do not have student detection technology must depend on training bus drivers to follow protocols and students to follow rules. “In the areas of loading and unloading, drivers are trained to check their mirrors, and rock and roll to see past the blind spots. We train them to use their mirrors as a system,” explained Ryan Hahn, transportation director for the North Clackamas School District near Portland, Oregon. “Tey should check the crossover mirrors first, convex mirrors and then the flat mirrors. If they look carefully, count kids and see the same number walking away from the bus or waiting for the bus to leave, they will be okay.” 
