The bill establishes that a person who knowingly operates a school bus transporting one or more students while that person's driving privileges have been suspended or revoked is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree. A crime of the fourth degree is ordinarily punishable by a term of imprisonment of up to 18 months or a fine of up to $10,000, or both. The bill further establishes that a person, knowingly operating a school bus while that person's driving privileges have been suspended or revoked, who is involved in an accident resulting in bodily injury to another person is guilty of a crime of the third degree. A crime of the third degree is ordinarily punishable by a term of imprisonment of three to five years or a fine of up to $15,000, or both. The bill requires the Chief Administrator of the Motor Vehicle Commission to revoke for life the passenger and school bus endorsements on the commercial driver's license of a person convicted of either offense. Finally, the bill specifies that a person convicted of either offense is permanently disqualified from employment as a school bus driver.
