A follow up to a story we brought you in April: school administrators in Botetourt County say some of its school bus stops along Routes 460 and 220 aren't safe.
The school system just got a green light to make it safer.
Transportation officials in Botetourt County noticed more incidents involving buses when the speed limit on route 460 was raised to 60 miles an hour.
School leaders admit they've pestered the Virginia Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit near Colonial Elementary off Webster Road, but with no success.
Instead, VDOT will allow the school system to put up flashing school zone along the highway.
The other safety improvement is cameras on the school buses.
If a driver runs past a stopped school bus on the same side of the road, the bus can take a picture of that car's license plate, which can lead to ticket.
School officials say they'll continue to lobby getting the speed limit lowered, but this is a step in the right direction.
Botetourt County will spend close to $12,000 making these sign and camera upgrades.
