It’s like deja vu in Huron Township with more drivers passing school buses with stop lights flashing.

Two more drivers were caught by police this week passing stopped school buses on the local roads.

One driver from Woodhaven was caught Monday morning on Sibley Road, and another driver from Dearborn flew by a stopped bus on Middle Belt Road Tuesday morning.

Here is police dash cam footage showing both drivers passing the buses:

When police asked the Dearborn resident why they didn’t stop for the bus with the lights on, she responded: “what lights?” according to Everette Robbins, Huron Township director of public safety.

“That’s two stops in two days. Hard to believe that adults would put our kids in danger to save a couple minutes. 99 out of 100 drivers would never do do this, but it would only take that one to create a tragedy,” Robbins said. “We will continue to conduct proactive enforcement and hold these drivers accountable as much as the law allows.”
