Many of New Jersey’s precious children board school buses twice a day. The safety of those youngsters are of utmost importance,” said Holzapfel (R-10). “The promise of unscheduled inspections will encourage transportation companies to identify and repair problems earlier, helping make school buses safer for students, bus drivers, and others on the road.”

In addition to the twice-annual scheduled inspections of school buses mandated under current law, Holzapfel’s bill (S-3378) requires the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission to also conduct unscheduled inspections.

“None of us wants to see an unsafe bus full of school students on our roads,” said Holzapfel. “This is a worthy investment in the safety of our children. We want them to get to school and back without unnecessary risk.”

The bill also provides that any fines imposed pursuant to the “School Bus Enhanced Safety Inspection Act” would be utilized for the continued administration of the program.
