About 23 million American children ride the bus to school every day to and from their houses. According to federal safety officials, about 15 school children are killed or injured every year getting on or off the bus.
This year the Phoenix police have vowed to crack down on people who do not obey the rules of the road that concern school bus safety, especially on or near major roadways.
They will start citing bus drivers who do not turn on their flashing lights, put out their stop signs or come to a complete stop.
More importantly, they will also ticket drivers who pass a school bus that has stopped or drivers that do not stop to allow children to safely cross the road.
Several Phoenix locations have been designated as the areas where the most violations occur, and according to officials, those will be the main focus in the efforts to catch violators.
