FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Indiana State Troopers in Fort Wayne are hitting the roads throughout Northeast Indiana to target school bus stop arm violators.
The Stop Arm Violation Enforcement Program (SAVE) goal is an effort to support and provide safe transportation routes to and from school for school children of all ages in Indiana.
"State Troopers from the Fort Wayne Post would remind and encourage all motorists to be observant, mindful, and cautious for the presence of school children each day during your morning and afternoon commutes. Where there is a school bus present, chances are very likely that there are also children present; and children can be unpredictable. Do your part to ensure safer roadways for all this school year, and hopefully we won't have to do ours!"
This program is intended to prevent violations through High Visibility Enforcement by following school bus routes to provide on the spot enforcement action for observed violations.
Project SAVE will run through Sept. 15.
