Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (School Buses)
The proposed amendments to the Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations (MVSR) would require school buses to be equipped with an extended stop signal arm as well as an exterior perimeter visibility system, including a monitor, to display views to the driver. In addition, the proposed amendments would set minimum requirements that would apply to the voluntary installation of stop signals – cameras on school buses. In addition, the proposal aims to repeal sections 15.1 and 17 of the MVSR, which pertain to naming conventions for Test Methods and notices published in the Canada Gazette for updates to Technical Standards Documents (TSDs) respectively, in order to better align the MVSR with amendments made to the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (MVSA) in 2014.
