The North Dakota Highway Patrol in the Southeast region conducted a Trooper on a Bus event in conjunction with the Carrington School District on the afternoon of September 17th. A Trooper was placed on a bus and another trooper followed to raise awareness of traffic violations that occur around school buses.
No violations were observed during the approximately one hour detail.
The NDHP asks motorists to exercise caution when around schools, buses and during periods before and after school. Parents should remind their children to be wary of traffic. They can also protect their kids by purchasing items such as jackets, shoes or backpacks with reflective material. Reflective tags or key chains can also be clipped to backpacks for additional protection. Reflective items alert drivers to the presence of children as they walk to and from school during the abbreviated daylight hours present during much of the North Dakota school year.
