Officials remind drivers of Iowa school bus law
CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) — As schools across the state prepare for a new school year, officials are reminding Iowa drivers of a new law that increases penalties for failing to heed school bus warning devices.
Kadyn’s Law was passed by the Iowa Legislature in March and signed into law by Gov. Terry Branstad. It’s named for Kadyn Halverson, a 7-year-old girl who was hit by a pickup and killed last year while walking to her bus. The driver of the truck, Aaron Gunderson, of Northwood, was sentenced in January to 15 years in prison.
Mandy Norris of Cedar Rapids said she and her two children live on a busy corner where the school bus stops, so she’s thankful for the new law.
