It's been over a week already that school is back in session, and people are still blowing past school buses with the stop sign showing.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation wants to make sure that motorists are back in the habit of driving safely around schools and school buses. Know what to do when you are around them. It could mean the difference between waiting a couple of minutes or tragedy.

MnDOT says that each year, more kids are tragically killed outside of school buses than inside as occupants.  Motorists need to pay more attention when approaching a school bus either from the front or back.  The fine for violating the school bus stop arm law is $500 and I would argue that it's not enough by at least half.
