The North Dakota Highway Patrol is continuing its presence on school
buses in this area. There will be a North Dakota Highway Patrol officer on a
school bus in the Park River School District Wednesday, December 19th.
The purpose is to raise our awareness of traffic violations that happen
around school buses. If violations occur, another Patrol officer or deputy will
be nearby to stop the violator and ticket or arrest him or her.
North Dakota law requires drivers to stop if the bus has activated its
alternating flashing red lights or stop control arm. That's a requirement if
the driver's either meeting the bus or following it from behind. The driver
must stay stopped until the red lights are deactivated or the bus driver
signals the motorist to proceed, or the bus resumes motion.
