One driver was ticketed for illegally passing a school bus in Huron Township on Dec. 19.
The Huron Township Police Department conducted a proactive school bus detail that day, resulting in one driver being cited.
The special detail included several plain clothes officers on multiple buses, unmarked police vehicles following multiple busses, and fully marked patrol vehicles assigned to initiate traffic stops on offenders.
High school, middle school, and elementary bus routes were enforced during the police operation.

Exactly when can/can’t someone pass a school bus
The overhead yellows are used to signal that a stop is about to occur and caution should be used. Typically the overhead reds do not begin flashing and the stop arm does not engage until the service door actually begins to open. For safety’s sake, it is better if you stop with the bus once those yellow overhead lights are engaged, however, you can only be ticketed for running the flashing red lights and stop arm as they are legal instruments of the law.
When red lights are flashing on the bus, you need to stop.
