On Tuesday, four drivers passed a Goddard school district bus with its stop sign extended. Each received tickets.
Monday, a deputy rode a bus with the Derby school district. They will be with different districts throughout the week.
Red lights and an extended stop sign on the bus indicate all cars need to stop. It’s state law for both directions of traffic to stop when a school bus extends its stop sign.
