Failing To Stop For Bus Brings About Harsher Punishment

A new law enacted Tuesday makes the punishments for failing to stop for a school bus even harsher.

According to the new law, motorists failing to stop for a school bus with flashing red lights who is loading or loading children could lose their license for up to a year as well as receive four points on their license. Currently, such violators would only face a fine of $249 and four points on their driving record.

A driver would lose their license for one year with no modifications as a result of House Bill 1507, also named “Aaron’s Law.”

The law also increases the fines for negligent homicide from $100 to $1,000 and requires anyone who is convicted of negligent homicide to attend a driver improvement course. It also doubles the fines for anyone also convicted of any traffic offense in the prior three years.

If you or your loved is facing any driving-related charges, you need an effective, aggressive criminal defense attorney. Contact Chavers & Guhl, LLP today for a free, initial consultation.
