INDIANAPOLIS (WFFT) - More people appear to be stopping for school buses across Indiana.

On April 23, bus drivers across the state counted 2554 people running stop arms.

That's down by about 500 violations from last year, with about 1000 fewer buses reporting.

Last week, FOX 55 reported the violations were down in Allen County.

However, school districts said this count doesn't tell the whole picture because drivers are still reporting violations regularly.

Starting in July, anyone who illegally passes a school bus could have their license suspended for at least 90 days.

The statewide count is part of a national survey and is voluntary for each school district.

Number of violations reported by northeast Indiana school districts:

Adams Central Community Schools - 0 violations on 15 buses
Central Noble Community School Corporation - 2 violations on 11 buses
DeKalb County Eastern Community School District - 2 violations on 15 buses
