'Trooper on a Bus' conducted in northwestern North Dakota; program aims to improve safety


MINOT, North Dakota — Highway Patrol troopers this week are cracking down on traffic violations around school buses in northwestern North Dakota.

The patrol is bringing its "Trooper on a Bus" program to Grenora on Wednesday and New Town on Thursday.

The program has been used throughout the state in recent years. The goal is not only to catch violators but also to raise awareness about safety.

Troopers ride on buses, and if they observe motorists violating traffic laws such as failing to stop for a school bus they radio the information to other troopers in squad cars.

Failing to stop for a school bus can result in a $100 fine for both the driver and the registered owner of the vehicle.
