Serve Daily - - MERIT ACADEMY - By Lana Hiskey

Nebo School Dis­trict Su­per­in­ten­dent Rick Nielsen, Utah Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mike McKell and Span­ish Fork High School stu­dent Reed Hey­wood re­cently met with Gover­nor Gary Her­bert at the cer­e­mo­nial bill sign­ing for H.B. 235, Au­to­mated Traf­fic En­force­ment Safety De­vices.

This bill au­tho­rizes the use of an au­to­mated traf­fic en­force­ment safety de­vice on a school bus to cap­ture a pho­to­graph or video im­age of a pos­si­ble vi­o­la­tion of cer­tain traf­fic laws; au­tho­rizes the use of a pho­to­graph or video im­age ob­tained by an au­to­mated traf­fic en­force­ment safety de­vice as ev­i­dence of cer­tain traf­fic vi­o­la­tions; and pro­vides for a por­tion of fines col­lected for cer­tain traf­fic vi­o­la­tions re­lated to school buses to be al­lo­cated to off­set costs of an au­to­mated traf­fic en­force­ment safety de­vice if the de­vice was used to pro­vide ev­i­dence of a vi­o­la­tion.

Reed has had a pas­sion for pol­i­tics since a young age, at­tend­ing cau­cus meet­ings with his fa­ther, David Hey­wood.
