Mom Screams with Glee as Police Bust Florida Drivers Speeding by Stopped School Bus

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – A dozen Florida drivers were ticketed after blowing past a stopped school bus on US 19 in Pasco County, Florida. A group of concerned moms recorded the police sting to catch the drivers.

“Go get them boys!” Monica Douglas screams to police in her now viral Facebook video. “Ha! Enjoy those tickets. Ha! Thank you!” More than 11 million people have seen the video.

“Thank you all for the support and shares and comments,” she later posted on Facebook. “Just remember stop for those buses.”

Warning: Video contains strong language

“IT IS THE LAW to stop for stopped school buses,” a Pasco County Sheriff’s spokesperson posted on Facebook. “This is to protect the children who are unloading from the bus. With recent reports of infractions, an Enforcement Action Plan was created for a noted bus stop on US 19. This body worn camera video from Deputy Justin Smith shows himself and Deputy Ashlyn Reese making several traffic stops yesterday morning as vehicles continued driving past a stopped bus as children were unloading.”

    There is lack of common sense in this video! There have been horrible tragedies in the past months but leaving children off a bus on a interstate or busy 4 lane expressway is Insane! YES it is illegal to pass a bus with lights on! But this example is very poor example! Bus driver should have turned down a secondary road with less traffic to let the children safely egress the bus!

      Agree absolutely …… this didn’t make a lick of sense from a child safety stand point, nor any kind of early morning orderly traffic situation. This is practically entrapment, and make no bones about it …… I’m always on the side of children’s safety, as I will take the liberty of assuming you are too.Take care.
