STOP PASSING THE BUS … The Montgomery County Council on March 6 unanimously approved Bill 37-11 that authorizes installation of cameras on County school buses to monitor vehicles that illegally pass stopped buses. Drivers caught on camera illegally passing a stopped bus will be subject to a maximum civil fine of up to $250. At the news conference, it was reported that each of the County’s 1,500 drivers reports approximately 500 incidents a year where vehicles illegally pass stopped buses. Among those at an event in Rockville to stress the importance of the bill were, left to right: Counclmember Valerie Ervin, the chief sponsor of the bill; David Rodich of SEIU Local 500, bus driver Bob Herron, Councilmember Phil Andrews, chair of the Council’s Public Safety Committee; Board of Education President Shirley Brandman, School Superintendent Joshua Starr and Police Chief J. Thomas Manger.
