DICKINSON, North Dakota — The North Dakota Highway Patrol is taking its "Trooper on a Bus" program to the Dickinson area.

The program involves putting troopers on school buses to observe traffic violations that occur around buses and to radio the information to officers in squad cars to make a traffic stop. The goal is to not only catch violators but also to raise awareness about safety.

The program has been used throughout the state in recent years. Tuesday's effort will focus on Dickinson and Stark County.

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