Springfield Drivers Are Violating School Bus Laws

You’re driving home and get stuck behind a school bus. Are you patient and stop or just pass on by?

According to schoolbusfacts.com, more than ten million drivers illegally pass school busses every year.

Residents living near Westport Elementary say drivers are ignoring the stop signs on school busses more often and plead to the public to stop.

Cathy Akers says people in her neighborhood have been talking about this problem for weeks and what to do about it.  Akers says drivers get impatient and drive right by school busses picking up and dropping off children.

Springfield police admit that it’s hard to give tickets for the violation, and ask witnesses to get driver's license plate numbers and call 911.
