COLUMBUS (WCMH) – A bill introduced Wednesday at the Ohio Statehouse proposes doubling the penalties for passing a stopped school bus.

According to current law, passing a school bus that has its flashing lights on carries a maximum penalty of $500 and a one-year license suspension.

Under House Bill 89, sponsored by Rep. Niraj Antani, the maximum penalties would be increased to a $1,000 fine and a two-year suspension.

The bill would also require Bureau of Motor Vehicles deputy registrar locations to display a graphic instructing drivers to stop and yield to a school bus that is loading or unloading passengers.
