ASK FOR A HAND, GET AN ARM
In the 1978-79 school year, the state of North Carolina had about nine fatalities involving pupils being struck by the front of the bus. North Carolina made an extensive study of pupil transportation to reduce this fatality rate. Out of this study came two state mandates: One for an eight mirror system to increase driver visibility, and the other for a new device called a crossing control arm to be attached to the front of school buses. Excellent results have been obtained, and North Carolina is now specifying walking arms on the front of all school buses purchased after June 1, 1983. The device is manufactured by Specialty Manufacturing Company, Inc.
