Minimum fines for passing school buses in NC bill

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina motorists convicted of passing a stopped school bus picking up or dropping off students would face a $500 minimum fine in addition to other punishments in legislation going to Gov. Pat McCrory's desk.
    
The House agreed Tuesday to Senate changes to the bill, named for an 11-year-old boy killed last December when police say a car struck him at a Forsyth County bus stop.
    
In the "Hasani N. Wesley Students' School Bus Safety Act," a driver who hits a child and faces a felony would receive a minimum $1,250 fine. A conviction resulting in death would mean at least $2,500.
    
The measure requires drivers convicted of repeat violations to have their licenses revoked for at least one year and possibly permanently. The motorist could get limited driving privileges.
