The OSP, Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Beavercreek Police Department, Fairborn Police Department and the Xenia Police Division will be visible this week along school bus routes and school zones to ensure the safety of students.
Greene County Sgt. John Chesser told News Center 7's Gabrielle Enright he was out before the sun Monday following school buses to keep an eye on other drivers.
“I’m watching to make sure they’re obeying the traffic laws,” he said. “Sometimes they’re not paying attention, sometimes it’s the ignorance of the law.”
State troopers say bus drivers can report violations, which could result in a ticket that could cost as much as $200.
“When we write someone a citation, they’ll get the message,” said Chesser.
