Stop for Buses

In an effort to call attention to the problem of vehicles not stopping for school buses, the State of North Carolina takes a day each year to survey bus drivers on whether motorists are violating the law. The results:

Year Number of participating buses Number of violations reported Percentage of buses that reported a violation
2004 13,416 2,188 16.31%
2005 13,518 1,957 14.48%
2006 13,513 2,438 18.04%
2007 13,900 2,310 16.62%
