State Troopers Keeping A Closer Watch For Drivers Passing Stopped School Buses
New York State Police are making an extra effort in the safety of students that ride school buses.
Operation Safe Stop is a campaign where New York State Police will be in traffic, driving Concealed Identity Traffic Enforcement Vehicles, and also marked State Police vehicles, watching for drivers that pass stopped school buses while they’re dropping off children or picking them up. Not only is it dangerous to do this, it is also against the law. If you get a ticket, it could be costly, costing you a court surcharge, a possible fine of $400 dollars and five points on your driver’s license.
According to the story from News 10 ABC, more than 120 tickets were issued by New York State Troopers during the campaign last year.
