Technology that gives school buses priority green lights at traffic signals can not only get students to class on time but can also provide multiple other student safety and environmental benefits, according to a new study released Tuesday.
A first-of-its-kind connected vehicle pilot program run near Atlanta using cellular vehicle-to-everything technology and prioritized traffic signals resulted in combined improvements that could help address school bus driver shortages, reduce fuel expenditures and maintenance costs through route optimization.
Most drivers have experienced a speeding fire truck or police vehicle quickly approaching from behind requiring them to quickly react to get out of the way. The danger of these situations is compounded when approaching a busy intersection at high speed when the traffic light is red. For the first responders rushing to a scene, speeding through red lights at intersections is not only dangerous to themselves, but for other nearby drivers and pedestrians.
