DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers are cracking down on traffic violations around school buses in the Devils Lake School District.

The patrol on Wednesday was bringing its “Trooper on a Bus” program to the city. Troopers ride on buses, and if they observe motorists violating traffic laws such as failing to stop for a school bus they radio the information to other troopers in squad cars.

The program has been used throughout the state in recent years. The goal is not only to catch violators but also to raise awareness about safety.

Troopers partnered with Mandan school officials on Tuesday, and observed one violation.
