Act 1207 of 2009 amended Ark. Code Title 6, Chapter 19, Subchapter 1 by establishing a School Bus Safety Equipment Pilot Program. This program was funded by the legislature for $140,000.00 and authorized the Division to institute a grant of equipment program to provide school districts with safety equipment to augment the responsibility of identifying motor vehicle violators who pass a school bus while stopped to load or unload students.

The grant of equipment will be either a video recording device or electronic warning device which will be provided to school districts, based on a competitive grant application, for installation on buses operating on high incident routes, as defined by law. Further explanation of the program is included in the attached grant application form.
