New Facebook page rails against arterial bus stops in Pinellas



Arterial bus stops, an issue in Pinellas since the beginning of the school year, have inspired a new Facebook page. The organizers say they're looking for videos that showcase safety hazards at arterial stops so they can "take the evidence before the Pinellas County school board for review."

"Enough is enough!" the site says. "I realize we have all been affected by the recession. As many others do, I understand that over the past few years government budget cuts across the board were and are necessary to stabilize our economy. However, I have a major problem when budget cuts compromise the safety of the students! This is what happened when the Pinellas County School Board transportation budget was cut, resulting in the plan for 'arterial busing.' "
