ELGIN, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol is bringing its “Trooper on a Bus” campaign to the Elgin area.

The program scheduled Monday aims to boost safety around school buses. Troopers riding on buses observe traffic violations that occur around the buses and radio the information to officers in squad cars who make traffic stops.

The patrol selects several towns throughout the year to highlight the dangers created by motorists who fail to stop for school buses when children are loading and unloading.

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