Troopers Keeping Watchful Eye On Stopped School Busses

State troopers will watch this week for motorists who fail to stop when a school bus lets out children on North Carolina roads.

Highway Patrol commander Fletcher Clay says authorities will charge drivers who try to pass a bus that has stopped and extended its warning arm. The charge is a misdemeanor that can bring a fine of up to $200 and five points on a driver's license.

Officials say more than 2,300 drivers violate the school bus law every school day. Troopers will patrol school areas and follow buses throughout the week.
