SCHOOL BUS STOP ARM CAMERAS

Working to ensure that every school bus in Indiana and across the U.S.A. is fitted with "School Bus Stop Arm Cameras".
School bus stop arm cameras are not the cure all, but it's a great first step of many that will help to assure the safety of our children each day.

IMPROVED SAFETY FOR SCHOOL BUSES

Working to help reduce dangers for Children when being picked up and dropped off at their school bus stop locations. The stakes are too high, the dangers to our children are to real, prohibiting buses from requiring children crossing the road MUST be a priority.

INCREASED PENALTIES FOR VIOLATORS

Working to promote new and stronger legislation to hold those accountable that violate the law by not stopping when a school bus stop arm is deployed. Enforcement is the key, and with more than 3,000 Near Misses each day in Indiana alone, it's time to take ACTION NOW!


MAXSTRONG "PSA" BANNERS PROMOTING SAFETY GO UP AUG 1st.


We are happy to announce that our first three banners promoting school bus safety will be going up in the Rochester area on August 1st.

The foundation would like to thank all of our supporters that have been purchasing wrist bands, hats, shirts and other items as well as direct donations to the cause of purchasing and installing these extremely important "Public Service Announcement" banners.

Since the passing and signing of the new MAXSTRONG ACT that went into effect July 1st that will help to improve school bus safety and help protect ALL CHILDREN across Indiana, along with the start of the new school year, we could not think of a better time to launch these "PSA Banners" to help promote safety and raise awareness to the need for drivers to STOP for school buses.

The MAXSTRONG Bill is now officially - "THE MAXSTRONG ACT"

The newly signed "MAXSTRONG ACT" is aimed at better strengthening school bus safety laws to help protect children across Indiana and the legislation is named in honor of our three children killed at their Fulton County bus stop last fall, Mason, Alivia, and Xzavier.

Since the tragedy, our family has been pushing to strengthen school bus safety laws. Now, as remarkable as it is 6 months later, thanks Senator Rand Head, Ethan Manning and so many other Legislators who worked so hard to get this law past, as well as Governor Holcomb who signed this important piece of legislation into law (The MAXSTRONG ACT), PART #1 of our Mission is Complete!

Here's What The Public Is Saying - In Their Own Words...

  • We definitely need to do something to protect the innocent children. They are our future. We also need to have stiffer penalties for those who violate those PROTECTIONS.
    Christina - Peru, IN
  • Praying something is done to prevent this from happening again..SO SAD.
    Jessica - Galveston, IN
  • All buses need cameras to catch drivers disobey the law. Drivers should face large fines for offending.
    Mary - SouthBend, IN
  • Max strong we need to protect our babies. We needed this passed.
    Stephanie - Winamac, IN
  • I am totally in favor of this idea. something must be done about people dis-REGARDING school bus stop signs. I totally support this idea.
    Jim - Kokomo, IN
  • I do think all bus should have cameras so they can help stop people from just hitting children and I believe they should follow rules if not give them a ticket
    Alysia - Knox, IN
  • There have been far too many tragedies involving school BUSes lately. I think putting cameras on the stop arms will really help to stop this from happening so often.
    Aubriana - Winamac, IN
  • Any and every possible measure needs to be taken to keep our children safe. Along with top arm Cameras no child should have to walk across the street to load or unload the bus.
    Jessica - Logansport, IN

JOIN THE MAXSTRONG MOVEMENT:

HELP US BRING CHANGES TO IMPROVE SCHOOL BUS SAFETY FOR "ALL CHILDREN".

MAX STRONG FOUNDATION - Where we go from here in 2019....

To help support our "PSA Banner Campaign" to help raise awareness to the need for drivers to pay attention and "STOP FOR ALL STOPPED SCHOOL BUSES", we are going to be launching a "YARD SIGN CAMPAIGN" in hopes of having yard signs at homes across the area and for that matter, across the state of Indiana. With the start of a new school year we need to get the message out NOW! This past spring despite the horrific tragedy that took our beautiful children from us on October 30, 2018 the new survey showed that more than 2,500 incidents occurred where vehicles did NOT STOP for stopped school buses.

WHAT WILL IT TAKE? - STRONGER PENALTIES, INCREASED ENFORCEMENT, SUSPENDED LICENSES and more.. We have made some great gains, but we have a long road ahead of us.

PLEASE JOIN US AND HELP IN ANY WAY YOU CAN!
