West Virginia has added additional penalties for passing a stopped school bus with flashers.

Despite earlier penalties, state officials say several hundred motorists violate the law daily.

Violators would see minimum fines doubled to $500 for a first offense and $1,000 for a second offense under the bill. It also carries a maximum six-month jail term.

The bill also would double driver's license suspensions to 60 days for a first offense and 180 days for a second offense.

It also requires exterior cameras on the front and back of all county school buses bought after July.
