School Bus Stop Arm Violations Rampant In Allen County
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

The Fort Wayne Police Department has been attempting to heavily enforce stop-arm laws effective with the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.

The Fort Wayne Police Department received a grant of just over $49,000 from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to target stop-arm violations on school busses, deemed Stop Arm Violation Enforcement or SAVE.

This program will allow the department to pay officers overtime to go out and sit and watch problem areas where schools have identified people who often pass school buses. Since the operation began, officers have issued a little over 100 violations as of Sunday, September 8. The operation is set to end on Friday, September 13th.
