Bus Stop

By  | 

Janice Miller has been driving bus for the Lansing School District for 16 years. She says drivers blow past her bus - while the stop sign is out as she's picking up and dropping off kids - on a daily basis.

When that happans, she blows her horn, signaling the kids to freeze. She also takes down plate numbers of the offending cars and reports them to police dispatch.

This Wednesday morning, police and the district were more proactive. Eight officers worked in teams of two, making sure drivers followed the law. One officer rode the bus with the kids... radioing to their partner in the cruiser when a car ignored the bus' stop sign.

On this day, only one person was cited for failure to stop. But, the message for people to recognize when children are getting on and off the bus is being sent. And, future operations will take place.
