INDIANAPOLIS, IN - More than 200 law enforcement agencies across Indiana are preparing to increase the number of patrols during school bus routes this spring.
The increase is all part of the state’s Stop Arm Violation Enforcement program (SAVE), which takes place twice a year. The overtime patrols are funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and those funds are administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI).
Participating agencies say school bus stop arm violations are a big issue, and a survey conducted by the Department of Education proves it.
Last spring, law enforcement agencies issued around 1,400 citations during the program. Officers patrol during the morning and afternoon routes.
Law enforcement officials say to slow down, stay alert and never pass a stopped bus with flashing lights and an extended stop arm.
The program includes two operational periods starting from April 1st through April 30th.
The fall program runs during the month of August.
