Ontario County Sheriff's deputies are taking an extra step to make sure area children get to and from school safely during Thursday's Operation Safe Stop.
Deputies will follow school bus drivers on their morning and afternoon routes to make sure motorists don't illegally pass them. The law requires drivers to stop when busses stop and their red lights go on. Drivers who fail to stop could face a $250 fine as well as a $93 surcharge. Deputies will also be cracking down on distracted driving, especially drivers using a smart phone.
