PennDot Providing More Info On School Bus Driver Applicants

wnpv_schoolsThe Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has finalized changes that make a school bus driver applicant’s entire driving record available to the would-be employer. The new policy follows a fatal crash involving bus driver Frederick Poust of Schwenksville early this year outside the Perkiomen Valley West Middle School, on Route 73 near Swamp Creek Road in Zieglerville.  The company that employed him said it found no record of a fatal crash in Hilltown in 1999, when he ran a stop sign while talking on a cell phone, killing a two-year-old girl.  Montgomery County State Representative Josh Shapiro, who pushed for the new policy, says PennDot made two key changes in the information it provides to school districts and bus companies.

“A complete and full driver’s history, in the past it only went back ten years, and if there have been accidents or crashes a better understanding of what occurred in those crashes, whether injuries resulted or, God forbid, fatalities resulted, so all of that information will now be made available to the school districts and/or the bus companies.”

Poust is charged with homicide by vehicle and other offenses in the February crash.  Police say he caused it by improperly entering the opposing traffic lane.  Onboard bus video shows him driving recklessly and running ten stop signs prior to the crash.

WNPV AM 1440 AM/FM Radio Has More Daily Listening than All Other Audio Combined Source: John Potter, SVP/Professional Development, RAB Edison Research released results of their Share of Ear study at the Radio and Internet Newsletter (RAIN) Summit in Indianapolis on Tuesday, which took place prior to the 2014 Radio Show. The goal was to show all radio listening from a single source. Included were AM/FM radio, Internet radio, SiriusXM, and other audio sources. This was a national study conducted in May, 2014, online and offline, of persons 13+, in both English and Spanish. The sample base was 2,096. The methodology was diary based where respondents logged listening including platform, device, Internet radio brand, location (car, home or other), and type of element. The study shows AM/FM radio commands over half of Americans' share of time spent listening to audio sources: AM/FM radio -- 52.1% Owned music (CD's, digital music files...) -- 20.3% Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 11.6% SiriusXM -- 7.7% TV music channels -- 5.2% Podcasts -- 1.7% Other -- 1.5% More importantly, the study broke out audio listening of radio services and found AM/FM radio increased its lead over other audio sources: AM/FM radio --75.3% Pandora -- 9.2% SiriusXM -- 11.1% Other Internet radio -- 4.4% Daily reach for AM/FM radio is similar to other studies showing nearly 3 out of 4 Americans listen to AM/FM every day: • AM/FM radio --72% • Owned music (CDs, digital music files...) -- 39% • Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 26% • SiriusXM -- 13% • TV music channels -- 11% • Podcasts -- 5% The full study is available for purchase from http://www.edisonresearch.com.
