Indiana State Police inspect SBCSC school buses for back to school

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Back to school is just around the corner, which means it's time for the South Bend Community School Corporation's annual school bus inspections.

On Monday, the Indiana State Police checked lights, brakes, cleanliness and all areas of the school buses to ensure that the buses and drivers are ready to get back into service.

"Safety of the kids-- you obviously don't want anything going wrong with the bus to cause accidents. You want all the lights to work so the motorists stop when the stop sign is out so the children are safe getting on and off the bus. So, it's really important for the safety of the driver, the kids and other motorists," said Indiana State Police Trooper Travis Harrold.

State police said, so far, there have been no major violations this year.
