Malcolm Bruce said he wanted Gordon Brown to lead from the front
A bill calling for the law to be toughened on school bus safety has been presented to Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Gordon's Lib Dem MP Malcolm Bruce also presented the bill to the new secretary of state for transport, Lord Adonis.
He wants it to be made illegal for vehicles to overtake a stationary school bus, and also wants more safety training and warnings.
The call follows the deaths of two pupils in Aberdeenshire last year.
Alexander Milne, 12, and Robyn Oldham, 15, died after being struck by cars when they stepped off school buses.
Mr Bruce said: "I expect the prime minister to lead from the front and to face up to the responsibility he has to parents and school pupils in the north east and around the country, to improve standards on school bus safety."
New school bus safety information was recently made available on the 1second1life website.
