06 / 14 / 2012 - Newton, AL
In an effort to further increase school bus safety by reducing injuries and fatalities that result from illegal school bus stop arm running, American Traffic Solutions (ATS) and AngelTrax have announced the formation of a strategic alliance.
“AngelTrax, has a proven track record and expertise in the school bus safety industry,” said James Tuton, ATS CEO. “We’re excited to work with a quality company that shares our commitment to using technology to enhance public safety.”
This alliance will bring together ATS, the nation’s largest provider of road safety camera solutions with AngelTrax, a leading provider of mobile surveillance technology to the school bus, mass transit, waste management and rail industries.
This strategic partnership will enable both companies to leverage core strengths to produce a robust, high quality product specifically designed to reduce school bus stop arm running. Under their agreement, ATS’ turn-key, automated School Bus Stop Arm Enforcement Solution CrossingGuard®, will be powered by AngelTrax’s IntelliGuard™ Stop Arm Enforcement Camera System.
“This strategic partnership demonstrates the commitment of AngelTrax and ATS working together to pursue the shared goal of further enhancing pupil transportation safety,” said Richie Howard, President and CEO of AngelTrax. “AngelTrax and ATS are combining our strengths to deliver an unparalleled stop arm violation detection system that will help raise awareness in our communities of illegal school bus stop arm running and potentially save children’s lives.”
Every school day in the United States, more than 70,000 motorists illegally pass school buses as they stop to let students on and off. This alliance pairs two industry leaders with the introduction of a cutting edge solution that will help school officials and law enforcement agencies more effectively enforce school bus stop arm running laws. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that just in the state of Florida, drivers pass school bus stop arms more than 2 million times a year.
