New legislation is being introduced to help students get to school more safely. Senator Jeff Van Drew and Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak are going to introduce a bill that would require school districts to provide transportation for students who are forced to travel along hazardous roads to get to school. The issue came up with a subcommittee at the Vineland School Board, who expressed concern for students who travel hazardous routes in Vineland on foot to get to school. A 2013 report by the New Jersey State Police found that of the 542 people killed in fatal crashes that year, 132 were pedestrians. The bill seeks to reduce the risk young children and teens face when commuting to school on a daily basis.
