Troopers to watch for drivers passing stopped school buses

RALEIGH (AP) -- State troopers will watch this week for motorists who fail to stop when a school bus lets out children on North Carolina roads. Highway Patrol commander Fletcher Clay says authorities will charge drivers who try to pass a bus that has stopped and extended its warning arm. The charge is a misdemeanor that can bring a fine of up to $200 and five points on a driver's license. Officials say more than 2,300 drivers violate the school bus law every school day. Troopers will patrol school areas and follow buses throughout the week. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Curious, but true

The last several times I have seen this happen in the Wimington area it was being done by both male and female drivers but all appeared to be Latino as well. I wonder if this is the norm for the Illegal Aliens to not know what the laws are on our roads? Or is it that they are already breaking the law being here and just don't care? And if they are not Illegal, then they are just breaking a serious law and should be caught and sent home anyway. Think of the stink being stirred up if a white driver hit a latino kid.


Curious? Really? Why? Ask President Bush why you see them everywhere. Ask why everone employee's them? Good Luck!
