Does another Boone County child have to be seriously injured or worse yet die as a result of people not following stopped school bus laws?
I believe most school buses are equipped with cameras to film vehicles passing them. What happens to this film? Does anyone view it to get information so that violators can be charged?
Someone needs to enforce the law. We don't need another dead child to get something done.

Thom Stevens in his op-ed article on Aug. 13 referred to Michael Lewis, M.D., as a West Virginia medical treasure. Dr. Mike Lewis lived well and died gently. Most patients say that is what they would like to do too. Dr. Lewis was a strong advocate of quality care for patients from birth through death. He understood the importance of advance directives and medical orders like Do Not Resuscitate orders and the Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment to ensure that patients' wishes for treatment were respected. It was under Dr. Lewis's watch that the West Virginia e-Directive Registry was created. He had the vision to see how a statewide system in which physicians could access a patient's advance directives and medical orders in a medical crisis could help to promote the best end-of-life care possible. For more information about the system go to wvendoflife.org/e-Directive-Registry or call (877) 209-8086.
Dr. Mike Lewis served West Virginians throughout his career. He left a legacy from which they will benefit for many years to come. Sincerely,
Alvin H. Moss, M.D.
Professor of Medicine,
West Virginia University School of Medicine
