AVON, Ind. (WISH) — The Avon Police Department is cracking down on drivers who don’t stop when a school bus arm is out.
Weeks ago, the department won a grant that would allow officers to deploy targeted enforcement efforts for school bus arm violations.
Effective July 1, 2019, disregarding a school bus stop arm in Indiana is now a misdemeanor.
The police department says if you run a school bus stop arm in Avon, you will be criminally charged and your license can also be suspended for up to a year.
Tickets could range anywhere from $150 to $250.
