Michelle Gardner submitted this video and it shows a Livingston Parish school bus not using flashing lights or a “stop arm” when dropping off kids.
According to Delia Taylor with Livingston Parish Schools, “the School District Transportation Department was alerted that this bus was not using flashing lights or a ‘stop arm’ about three stops after this incident. They met with the bus driver who was driving a “new bus on loan” and accidentally flipped a switch that turned these functions off. The bus driver met with administrators immediately to go over the proper procedures and make sure she now knows how to use them. The incident took place around 3 pm on Hammack Road.”
