Two motorists passed stopped schools buses in Huron Township Friday morning, and local law enforcement is saying enough is enough.

“We certainly will be reaching out to lawmakers to see what can be done,” said Everette Robbins, director of public safety. “Enough is enough.”

A Taylor resident passed a stopped bus early Friday morning near Sibley Road and Vining.

Robbins said the driver “apologized after.”

Later in the morning, a Romulus resident with an expired license plate and no proof of insurance passed a bus near Sibley and Merriman Road.

“These two are probably the most egregious yet. These were not mistakes, they didn’t even slow down. It makes me sick to my stomach to watch. You can hear people beeping horns and yelling in the video, and it makes no difference,” Robbins said.

Below is dash cam video of the drivers passing the buses.

    Would it be possible for the buses to pull in the middle of the road, making it physically difficult for motorists to pass them? I love the fact that the police are doing these patrols and spreading awareness.
