MICHIGAN – Michigan police are targeting drivers who illegally pass school buses this week as part of National School Bus Safety Week.

This crackdown is part of Operation Safe Stop, an initiative for National School Bus Safety Week.

Drivers are supposed to stop when they see overhead flashing yellow light and should stop at least 20 feet away from a bus when the lights turn red.

A ticket between $100 and $500 is anticipated for drivers who pass a stopped school bus.

In Michigan last year, there were nearly 1,200 crashes involving school buses.
