Police Concerned with Number of Drivers Ignoring School Bus Stop Arms

State Police are alarmed by a report saying over 3,000 drivers ignored school bus stop arms in Indiana on April 24th alone.

Sergeant Todd Ringle with the Indiana State Police calls the numbers from the National Association of Pupil Transportation Services unacceptable.

Indiana law says drivers in both directions of traffic have to stop for a school bus.

The only time you don’t have to stop is if there is a distinct median in the road.

Disregarding a school bus stop sign is punishable by a maximum fine of up to $10,000.
