Chrysler Receives Iowa State University Research Grant

August 12, 2012

Sue Chrysler, director of research at the National Advanced Driving Simulator, has received a $30,000 research grant from Iowa State University.

Chrysler will study school bus safety related to Kadyn’s Law -- a new Iowa law that increases penalties for drivers who fail to abide by stopped school bus laws. The measure also has been introduced in Congress in an attempt to apply the law nationally. The bill is informally known as ‘Kadyn’s Law,’ in memory of Kadyn Halverson, a 7-year-old first grader from Kensett, IA, who was killed in May 2011 by a driver who illegally passed a stopped school bus.
