RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Highway Patrol is planning a crackdown on dangerous driving around school buses and in school zones.

Troopers say Operation Stop Arm will start at 6 a.m. Monday and go through the end of school Friday.

Some troopers will follow school buses, while others will be watching school zones. The Highway Patrol says it will use both marked and unmarked cars.

Passing a stopped school bus can be a five-point violation and a fine of up to $200.

Troopers say some buses now have outside cameras and that video can be used to find and prosecute drivers.
