The recurrence of motorists passing stopped school buses in Huron Township is “happening more frequently than I can ever remember before,” says Everette Robbins, director of public safety.
The department has pulled over and cited more than a half dozen drivers for passing stopped buses since the school year has started.
It’s becoming a dangerous daily occurrence on the local township roads during pickup and drop off times.
Another driver passed a stopped bus Tuesday afternoon, and another one on Wednesday morning.
“The majority of the offenses are on the main roads within the township that have the highest traffic volume and speed limits. It is truly hard to understand,” Robbins said.
On Tuesday afternoon, a Westland woman was pulled over on Sibley Road and told police “I knew I should have stopped,” after she drove past the bus.
On Wednesday morning, a Detroit resident was pulled over again in Sibley Road, for passing a bus, and a background check of the driver revealed a suspended driver’s license.
