Operation Stop Arm Nets Thousands Of Traffic Citations Statewide

The week-long effort to promote traffic safety around North Carolina schools, school buses, and school bus stops, known as Operation Stop Arm, resulted in numerous violations.

Troopers across the state looked for violations in and near school zones as well as followed school buses looking for drivers who failed to stop for the school bus stop arm law. Troopers issued more than 6,000 traffic violations statewide in and around schools and school zones.

    Schools buses should do the posted speed limit on any road,Hwt and Interstate not the 45 that they do. If Drivers can not stop long enough for the driver to pick up and drop off the childern than they need to get a ticket.

    if you want school buses to be safe then put seat belts in all of them and allow them to go over 45mph. When they only go 45mph it means they are constantly being passed and this causes even more danger.
