Court required for drivers passing school busesJuly 30, 2019
By The Associated Press
MUNCIE — Drivers in one central Indiana county will have to start going before a judge if they are caught passing a stopped school bus.
The change in Delaware County comes as a tougher state law was adopted this year after three siblings were fatally struck in October in northern Indiana's Fulton County while crossing a highway to board their stopped school bus.
Muncie City Court Judge Amanda Dunnuck says she wants to change behaviors rather than allowing ticketed drivers to simply pay a $75 fine. Dunnuck tells The Star Press that she'll be able to review a person's driving record and decide whether a larger fine or driver's license suspension is warranted.
Northeastern Indiana's LaGrange County is increasing enforcement by randomly placing police officers on school buses to watch for violators.
