SPEED monitoring will occur on Cargo Road in response to a resident's fears for her sons' safety catching the bus home from school.
Liz Hammond has been in contact with Cabonne Council twice during the past 16 months in an effort to slow traffic on Cargo Road around school buses.
Her family lives three kilometres east of Cargo where the speed limit is 90km/h and her sons, Henry, 13, and Archie, 10, catch the bus from from Orange in the afternoons, meaning they have to cross the road to reach their house.
According to Transport for NSW Centre for Road Safety's website, traffic overtaking school buses stopped on the side of the road with their lights flashing must slow to 40km/h by law and drivers should look out for children who are crossing the road or waiting to cross.

"My issue is drivers aren't reducing their speed to 40km/h," Mrs Hammond said.
"On the Cargo side, there is a hill so even if the car is doing 90km/h, it's right on you before you know it."
With limited signage warning drivers of school children catching buses, she wrote to the council, with member for Orange Phil Donato also submitting a letter on her behalf.
The matter was put to the council's traffic committee, which resolved to put out traffic counters, but months later no traffic count has occurred.
Mrs Hammond has tried to take direct action, signalling to drivers from the roadside to cut their speed on occasions where she was able to meet her sons at home.
"I've been given the bird by drivers, I've had them nudge their car towards me," she said.
She said she had also done what she could to educate her sons on crossing the road safely but after a car crashed in unknown circumstances not far from the bus stop late last month, Mrs Hammond said it heightened her concern.
"If something serious were to happen, I don't want that to be my child, or anyone's child," she said.
Cabonne Council spokesman Dale Jones said the counters had only just become available and would either be laid this week or next week.
"We only have a certain number of sets - they were on other roads and they have to be down for a certain period to get a proper count," he said.
Mr Jones said the traffic volumes and speeds would be analysed before the traffic committee decided on the next course of action.
