Nebo student instrumental in passage of safety bill
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.
