ARLINGTON — State troopers would like to remind you it’s illegal to pass a stopped, loading school bus.
For three drivers, that reminder came in the form of a $419 ticket on Friday.
A Washington State Patrol task force focused on the Arlington School District, to catch drivers blowing past buses that were picking up children, with a stop sign displayed.
Troopers patrolled from the ground and air for the emphasis effort Friday.
One of the drivers was arrested because of a suspended license and a warrant in a prior DUI.
On roads with medians or more than three lanes of traffic, cars going the same direction as the bus must stop.
In 2017, the Marysville School District installed traffic cameras on buses to catch violators.
