Operation Stop Arm In Effect

Troopers are targeting drivers who break traffic laws around school buses and school zones this week.

Operation Stop Arm starts Monday. Troopers say they will be on the look out for drivers passing school buses where they have their stop arms out.

In recent years, three children have been killed at bus stops while trying to board or exit their bus. The penalty for violating the stop arm law is a mandatory court appearance and five points on a convicted drivers's record.
