Three new traffic laws in effect to improve California roads

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The first law in effect applies to private carriers like church buses and employee shuttles. The DMV and CHP will oversee a program to ensure private carriers are operating in a safe manner and maintain adequate insurance coverage.

The second requires children between the ages of 8 to 15 on a bus to wear a seatbelt or be properly restrained.

The last law in effect prohibits Uber or Lyft drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.04 or higher from transporting passengers.

This lowers the legal limit from 0.08 BAC for commercial drivers.
