Suffolk County School Bus Safety Program

  • Miller Place School District is participating in the Suffolk County School Bus Safety Program initiative. Suffolk County has installed on First Student buses stop arm cameras which will enforce school bus stopping laws to help protect students at bus stops and on school grounds.  This Suffolk County initiative has equipped more than 4,000 school buses in Suffolk County with this advanced safety technology to help keep students safe at school bus stops and on school grounds.  Currently, the program is sending warnings to drivers who pass a school bus with the stop arm engaged.  It is our understanding, that the warning period ended on May 1, 2021 and motor vehicle tickets will be issued by Suffolk County to violators.
