A statewide campaign surrounding the dangers of passing a stopped school bus when its red lights are flashing is kicking off this week.
Operation Safe Stop gets underway Thursday morning.
The New York Association for Pupil Transportation, NYAPT, says 50,000 drivers in New York illegally pass stopped school busses each day.
Starting Thursday, expect to see more police officers during the start and end of the school day.
