2016-2017 Regular Session
P.L.2015, c.266 (C.39:3B-26), which was approved on January 19, 2016, requires each school bus manufactured on or after the 180th day following the law's enactment to be equipped with a sensor to alert a bus driver to the presence of objects in front or back of the bus. The State Board of Education, in consultation with the Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, was directed to promulgate regulations on the design and installation of the sensor. This bill provides that school bus sensors must be weather-resistant, and are to be placed around the bus in accordance with safety guidelines set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The sensors must be able to determine the presence of objects around the bus as opposed to only in the front or rear of the bus. The bill also provides that the law's provisions will first be applicable to school buses manufactured on or after one year following the date of enactment of P.L.2015, c.266, rather than the 180th day after enactment as provided in the original law.
