It keeps happening...drivers ignoring the law which states motorists must stop for a school bus loading or unloading children. What most people don't know is that it includes oncoming traffic, as well as traffic behind the bus.
"I guess a lot of people don't know the law or they just ignore it...drive on through the stop light," says Clark McDaniel, Nettleton School Bus Driver and Teacher.
The only highway in Jonesboro that makes an exception is Highway 63. Oncoming traffic is not expected to stop, since the highway is separated by a grassy median. But motorists just don't seem to understand that. Bus drivers say that has to change...otherwise a child could be injured or even die as a result.
