10/06/09 128 W, 1 I - + 12 - 17 Students Stuck on Bus After Stop-Arm Breaks

Conveniently reported in time for today's school board elections, WRAL is reporting the curious story of a school bus incident in Morrisville. A number of high school students were kept aboard a bus for over an hour yesterday after the stop-arm stopped functioning. As it's against the law to transport students without a working stop-arm, the driver pulled over and parked. School officials sent a repair person to the scene, but getting the thing fixed took a little while. Says a school system spokesperson, the safest place for students was on the bus and not on the street. Good thing the weather was cooler! Wonder what other regulations impact the regular operation of buses? Read the WRAL story.
