School Bus Safety Patrols Coming to Dubois County

The Dubois County Sheriff's Office will be stepping up safety around school buses.

Posted: Mar 25, 2021 7:43 PM

The Dubois County Sheriff’s office says it will be conducting school bus safety patrols this spring.

The goal of the high-visibility patrols in the morning and afternoon along bus routes is to encourage drivers to obey school bus stop-arms.

Officers will be out this spring during the last few months of school. They will be looking out for bus stop-arm violations as well as speeding and other unsafe driving. It’s all in an effort to protect students going to and from school.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is providing funding for the deputies to work overtime to perform these patrols.

It’s part of the state’s Stop Arm Violation Enforcement (SAVE) program. SAVE was enacted in 2019 to help cut down on dangerous driving around schools and bus routes.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
