Passing stopped school bus; release of information by the Department of Motor Vehicles; reporting violation. Authorizes the Department of Motor Vehicles (the Department) to release vehicle owner data of a vehicle that failed to stop for a stopped school bus upon request of a video-monitoring system operator or upon request of the authorized agent or employee of a video-monitoring system operator. The bill expands the length of time for which a driver of a motor vehicle must remain stopped for a stopped school bus from when all persons are clear of the roadway to when the bus is back in motion. The bill provides that any conviction for passing a stopped school bus imposed by mailing a summons will not be reported to the Department or made part of the operator's driving record. However, the bill provides that if the conviction is imposed as a result of a law-enforcement officer personally issuing a summons at the time of violation the conviction shall be reported to the Department and shall result in the assessment of four demerit points to that person's driving record. The bill provides that an ordinance enacted by a county regarding a video-monitoring system applies to infractions that occur within any town located within the county for which the county provides the public school system. Amends § 46.2-208, § 46.2-844, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
