Survey finds increase in drivers not stopping for school bus stop arms


ST. PAUL -- A survey by the Minnesota State Patrol has found children are increasingly being put at risk as they enter and exit school buses by motorists who fail to yield to stop arms.

The one-day study conducted in April showed a 65 percent increase in stop arm violations compared with 2014. Eighty-eight percent of the stop arm violations were drivers approaching the front of the bus.

There were 3,570 bus drivers from 110 companies who participated in the study from throughout the state.
