Police enforcing school bus safety law

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Law enforcement officers across New York state
are participating in a crackdown on motorists who illegally pass school buses
when they're picking up or dropping off students.

State troopers, sheriff's deputies and local police officers are
taking part Thursday in Operation Safe Stop. They'll be following behind school
buses in marked and unmarked patrol vehicles on selected bus routes that have a
history of illegal passing complaints.

Motorists caught passing stopped school buses will be issued

State police say all violations will be reported to a central
command post so that final figures are available to state and local officials
as well as the media.
