Patrols Set to Crack Down on School Bus Stop-Arm Violations
Monday, August 2, 2021

INDIANAPOLIS - Over 200 Indiana police agencies will be boosting their patrols this fall to crack down on school bus stop-arm violations and dangerous driving near school bus stops and in school zones.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced the extra patrols last week and is urging motorists to keep watch for school buses in the weeks ahead.

In 2019, Indiana lawmakers approved tougher penalties for drivers who pass school buses with extended stop arms after three children were fatally struck while crossing a highway to board a bus.
