ILLEGAL PASSING OF STOPPED SCHOOL BUSES IN FLORIDA

The excessive frequency of the illegal passing of stopped school buses reported by school districts in Florida prompted the Florida Department of Education to work in partnership with the Center for Urban Transportation Research to conduct a study to assess the magnitude of this problem, describe its characteristics, and to recommend practical countermeasures and define future research to aid in the abatement of this problem. In addition to empirically describing this problem, this project included an analysis of the Florida Statewide Traffic Accident Management Information System; conduct of several focus group sessions with school bus drivers, parents, school district transportation staff, law enforcement officers, and private motorists; and a review of school district school bus routing procedures. Detailed results from these tasks are contained in this final report.
