Judge Melendrez states that through her office she has seen an increase in citations regarding this matter. “We are seeing an increase on citations where people are not heeding to the rules when encountering a bus that is loading or unloading children. Remember, one must stop and not try try to drive around the buses because you will get pulled over, reported and ultimately fined.”
