LaGrange County “S.A.F.E. for Kids” Raising Awareness on Stop-arm Violations
By: Sheila McCrea - Thursday, September 30, 2021

LAGRANGE, IN - Project S.A.F.E. for Kids with the LaGrange County Prosecutor’s Office, state, and local law enforcement is working to make bus stops as safe as possible.

S.A.F.E. stands for stop-arm focused enforcement, and Wednesday, officers followed Westview School buses on routes with previous violations and rode along to watch for violations so they could radio officers on the road to initiate a traffic stop.

Project S.A.F.E. for Kids comes in addition to the camera systems that have been installed on school buses in the county to help track down violators.

Violating a school bus stop-arm can come with some pretty hefty consequences, and those with S.A.F.E. for Kids hope this project can be a part of solving the problem of stop-arm violations.

Those with S.A.F.E. for Kids say they will continue their work by going to Lakeland Schools and then Prairie Heights School Corporation on a later date.
