Boone County Traffic Safety Partnership
Stop Arm Violation Enforcement
The Stop Arm Violation Enforcement (SAVE) Grant promotes a coordinated effort to improve compliance with school bus stop arms, pedestrian safety safe and enhance the safe transportation of children. The program is designed to encourage collaboration between law enforcement, school corporations, and school bus operators.
The goal of the SAVE program is to support and provide safe transportation routes to and from school for school children of all ages in Indiana. This program is intended to prevent violations through high visibility enforcement (HVE) by following school bus routes to provide on the spot enforcement for violations, focusing on stop arm violations, speeding, and reckless driving around school buses and school zones when children are present. Follow-up investigations utilizing on-board dash camera footage from school buses or other reported violations are also eligible activity and encouraged to deter stop arm violations.
