Entry Description

Clinton County-Today at approximately 3:00 p.m. the Indiana State Police at the Lafayette Post with cooperation from Clinton Prairie School Corporation were watching for school bus stop arm violations on State Road 39 in Clinton County.

A trooper riding in a Clinton Prairie School bus was watching for violations and was in contact with troopers in marked commissions on side roads ready to stop cars in violation of the law.  “We were glad to see the Indiana State Police assist us in trying to keep our children safe,” stated Vice-Principal Amanda Whitlock.   “This is a serious matter and law enforce as a whole are working to stop it before it gets a child hurt.”

The Indians State Police want to remind motorists that it is a Class A Infraction which is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.00 if you violate the stop arm law.  The content of the law state:

A person who drives a vehicle that:
        (1) meets or overtakes from any direction a school bus stopped on a roadway and is not stopped before reaching the school bus when the arm signal device specified in IC 9-21-12-13 is in the device's extended position; or
        (2) proceeds before the arm signal device is no longer extended;
commits the offense described in section 9 of this chapter.
    (b) This section is applicable only if the school bus is in substantial compliance with the markings required by the state school bus committee.
    (c) There is a rebuttable presumption that the owner of the vehicle involved in the violation of this section committed the violation. This presumption does not apply to the owner of a vehicle involved in the violation of this section if the owner routinely engages in the business of renting the vehicle for periods of thirty (30) days or less.

There were no violations that were found on this day but all law enforcement officers will continue to enforce the law.   The life you save by following the law may be your own child.
