AN ACT TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL METHODS FOR PROVING THAT A STOPPED VEHICLE PASSED BY ANOTHER MOTOR VEHICLE IS A "SCHOOL BUS" SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF G.S.20-217, TO REQUIRE LOCAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE UNITS TO PROVIDE INSTRUCTION IN SCHOOL BUS SAFETY TO STUDENTS, AND TO DIRECT THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION TO STUDY HOW THE SAFETY OF CHILDREN BOARDING AND EXITING SCHOOL BUSES MAY BE INCREASED.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
The proposed changes to GS 20-217(b) provide that a certified copy of a record from the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) showing that the vehicle was registered as a school bus at the time of the violation of subsection (a) of the statute is prima facie evidence that a vehicle was a school bus at the time of violating subsection (a) (subsection (a) makes it unlawful to not stop for a school bus that is receiving or discharging passengers). Modifies the proposed provision concerning the admissibility of a certified copy of a record from the DMV, providing that a certified copy of a record under this subdivision is admissible as provided in GS Chapter 8C, Evidence Code (previously, admissible as evidence without further authentication).
