Thursday, October 10, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Sheila Taylor, Principal Did you know it is illegal to pass a stopped school bus? We have seen an increase in bus violations, so we want to keep you informed of the law and penalties. Bus drivers report violations plus the district is invest- ing in cameras which will be on the bus arms to identify those that violate the law. The information below comes from http:// www.iowadot.gov/schoolbus/default.html. Take time to read through the law and penalties and make sure all drivers in your family are aware so we can keep our children safe and keep everyone violation free. Kadyn's Law: In March 2012, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad signed into law Senate File 2218, the "Keep Aware Driving -- Youth Need School Safety Act," com- monly known as Kadyn's Law. Passed unanimously in the Iowa House and Senate, the law is aimed at preventing other tragic deaths and serious injuries to Iowa's school children while board- ing or unloading from a school bus. May 10, 2011, Kadyn Halverson, age seven, of Northwood, was struck by a pickup while trying to cross the road to board a school bus. The Act increased the criminal penalties for passing a stopped school bus and directed the Iowa DOT to en- act rules that make illegally passing a stopped school bus a serious moving violation that triggers increasing periods of suspension for first, second and subsequent offenses. August 14, 2012, the Iowa Department of Transpor- tation adopted an emergency administrative rule that increases the administrative driving privilege sanctions for illegally passing a stopped school bus. Effective August 15, 2012, the rule provides that a person's Iowa driving privilege will be suspended 30 days for a first conviction, 90 days for a second conviction and 180 days for a third or subsequent conviction. Kadyn's Law also increased the criminal penalties and administrative sanctions for those convicted of such vio- lations, which are now as follows: Fine Driving privilege: Offense Criminal citation *additional Surcharges Imprisonment and court costs apply) suspension First offense Second offense i Third and i subsequent i offenses i i Any offense causing sedous i injury to another person* Iowa Code The court may Iowa Code 321.372(5)(b)(1 )  order imprisonment Unlawful passing of 321.372(5)(b)(1) At not to exceed 30 least $250, but not more school bus first offense, days in lieu of or in than $675 simple misdemeanor addition to a fine.
