More than 500 buses to be equipped with safety camera technology

MESA, Ariz., May 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Verra Mobility Corporation (NASDAQ: VRRM), a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announces its partnership with Polk County Public Schools to equip more than 500 school buses with safety camera technology to better protect children on their commute to and from school.

Verra Mobility will equip than 500 Polk County, Florida, school buses with safety camera technology.

The program will use state-of-the-art technology and a full-service solution to implement a comprehensive school bus stop-arm safety program for the county's school district, including the city of Lakeland. As one of the largest school districts in Florida - with more than 115,000 students and over 120 schools – the school bus stop-arm safety program will become one of the largest in the state.

"Nothing is more important than the safety of our children," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. "Everyone agrees that protecting our kids by enforcing the school bus stop arm law is the right thing to do. I am excited about this new technology that will help us keep kids safe."

"Polk County is one of the fastest growing communities in the nation," said Superintendent Frederick Heid. "More vehicles are on our roads than ever before. We are hopeful this innovative technology will help make our roadways less dangerous — particularly for our students. We must do everything possible to keep our children safe, and stop motorists from breaking the law."

Passing a stopped school bus with its stop-arm extended is against the law. In 2023, the Florida Department of Education released a survey showing nearly 8,400 school buses were illegally passed in just one day.

County officials aim to change this reckless and dangerous driving behavior. Through proven technology, Verra Mobility's CrossingGuard™ program has shown that 98 percent of drivers who are issued a violation for illegally passing a stopped school bus do not repeat their behavior; through community awareness, programs experience a 12 percent reduction in issued citations.

Verra Mobility will work closely with the county to identify the unique needs of the district and to implement the complex program across the school bus fleet. The technology will work to identify any vehicle that illegally passes a stopped school bus, sending verified violators a citation for their unlawful behavior.

"We are grateful to the county for entrusting us with this large-scale safety operation," said Jon Baldwin, executive vice president of Government Solutions, Verra Mobility. "The safety of our children deserves a company with the experience and commitment that only Verra Mobility can bring. We will work diligently to ensure their safety program receives the tailored attention and expedition that it needs."

Both parties aim to implement the program for the beginning of the 2024/2025 school year and will conduct an extensive public awareness campaign for 30 days prior to citations being issued.
