Indiana police boosting patrols to enforce school bus safety

By: | August 2, 2021

More than 200 Indiana police agencies will be boosting their patrols this fall to crack down on school bus stop-arm violations and dangerous driving near school bus stops and in school zones.

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced the extra patrols and urged motorists to keep watch for school buses in the weeks ahead.

“We’re entering back-to-school season in Indiana, which means motorists need to watch for buses and drive cautiously at all times,” Holcomb said in a statement.

Bus drivers and school transportation officials will help police identify areas where extra patrols are most needed under Indiana’s SAVE blitz, which stands for Stop Arm Violation Enforcement.
