No person shall operate a moving school bus while using a mobile telephone except in the case of an emergency. For the purpose of this paragraph, an emergency shall mean that the operator of the school bus needs to communicate with another to report any of the following: (a) that the school bus is disabled; (b) that medical attention or assistance is required for a passenger on the bus; (c) that police intervention is necessary for the personal safety of a passenger or to otherwise ensure the safety of the passengers; and (d) the presence of a disabled vehicle or an accident in the roadway.

Fine for this offense is $35.00 under Chapter 90 Section 7B.

Oooh! A thirty-five dollar fine!!! That's really stiff! Come on, I think that endangering 30+ students on a school bus should carry a much more severe penalty.
