BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol is taking its “Trooper on a Bus” program to the southwestern part of the state.

The program that has been used in various parts of North Dakota in recent years involves putting troopers on school buses to observe traffic violations that occur around buses. Troopers who observe motorists violating traffic laws radio that information to troopers in nearby squad cars.

The goal is to catch violators and also raise awareness about safety. The latest effort is planned Thursday.

Failing to stop for a school bus can result in a $100 fine for both the driver and the registered owner of the vehicle.
