    I see, DAILY, drivers running stop signs & lights, going at least 20 over speed limit, swerving while texting and quite a few other infractions but NEVER do I see a LEO of any type stopping them.

    Not sure what it will take......Folks now seem to think that a red light is merely a 'suggestion' to stop. Just like when they put their turn signals on to change lanes-it's not a 'request' by them to merge, rather a statement "I'm MOVING OVER regardless of space or anything else"

    Here we go again with another bad situation with a school bus. What does it take for people to pay more attention. People should be aware and treat a school bus like we do when it is a fire truck, ambulance or police, SHP or WCS Department. I just had someone pull out in front of me today just because they were too lazy to stop at the stop sign. Toughen up cops on this people.

    I saw several several cars run stop signs over the weekend.

    I know that law enforcement sees bad drivers run stop signs too but I'm not sure why they don't take action.
