NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — After a New Hanover County mom spoke out about drivers flying by her daughter’s stopped school bus, she’s seeing results.
Allison Coleman began recording drivers who passed the stopped school bus on Carolina Beach Road.
This week, she watched as three cars passed the bus, but waiting up ahead was a NC State Trooper. Coleman recorded the trooper pulling out behind the cars that drove by the bus.
Coleman says she’s definitely seeing an increase in patrols by both the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office and NC Highway Patrol.
While ideally she’d like to see the school bus stop moved to inside the neighborhood, she’s happy with the increased patrols, knowing the drivers will face points on their driver license and insurance.
