Wyoming Proposes Video Surveillance at School Crosswalks

The Wyoming Legislature is considering a bill that would enjoin the state Department of Transportation to survey school crosswalk zones on days that school is in session between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

(TNS) — Efforts to improve safety at school crosswalks throughout the state have continued throughout the Wyoming Legislature's general session.

Rep. Bill Henderson, R-Cheyenne, brought forward a bill that would require vehicles to stop for pedestrians in school zone crosswalks and implement video surveillance, making it the second piece of legislation this session that addresses pedestrian safety. He said he believes it is a good place to start.
